Say no to sand mining, preserve the environment, save our community, save our beach,

 Duncan Bay is a residential community comprising mainly returning and expatriate residence and visitors. We bought into the development for its quiet natural beauty, clean white sand beach and its wild life. This community has attracted people from all over the world and once they get here they seldomly leave.

The destruction of the community is driven by financial greed. The Duncan Bay Development Company is destroying the natural resources and beauty of this environment which in turn is having a negative impact on its residence. Since they bought into this development in the mid 1990's they have not done anything to improve the amenities in the community and it has been a constant struggle to keep them from destroying the environment. Our protest against the issue of a sand mining license is only one of our many struggles. The Prime Minister, the environmental protection agencies and other governmental agencies are not proactive in there actions and as a result the development company capitalizes on this lack of attention.

The Duncan Bay Citizens Association is the environmental watchdog for the community. The destruction of the environment devalues our properties and affects us all and so we have taken a position to stand up and defend the preservation of our environment.

The wider community of Trelawny and Jamaica by extension uses the Duncan Bay beach for recreation and if it is not protected from these greedy investors it will be destroyed. We therefore ask for your support as we stand and protest against the wrongful issue of a license to mine sand in our community and in protecting this precious piece of nature.
