The Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce [BEST] said they “would like to applaud the Cross Island Committee on their outreach and consultation efforts seeking ideas for making best use of Cross Island, once the America’s Cup Event Village has vacated the area.”

“We are also appreciative of the Committee for recognising and responding to our concerns, raised at an earlier public consultation, for the need of an environmentalist presence and viewpoint on the Committee,” BEST said.

“Since then the Committee has been joined by a representative of Greenrock. We welcome this development.

“We believe Greenrock’s representation will ensure an environmentalist voice is included in the Committee’s deliberations. Meanwhile, this appointment allows BEST to continue in its role as an external and independent watchdog on this project.
