Objections have been filed against the proposed St Regis project in St George’s, with the location of estate lots being one area of contention.

A series of estate lots are included in the fifth phase of the hotel project, located to the west of Tobacco Bay and southwest of Achilles Bay.

In one letter of objection, Kenneth O’Connor wrote: “I’m objecting because I would like to see the surrounding areas to these two open spaces to remain as open green space.

“I believe the rezoning of these areas to allow future development will be detrimental to the experience of the fort and Tobacco Bay beach area.”

The Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce also filed an objection, expressing a need for additional time to review the 880-page application.

Kim Smith wrote that it was “impossible” to review all of the documents within the usual two-week objection period, saying the deadline limited the ability of BEST or concerned members of the public to identify objectionable elements within the proposal.
