Jamaica Sports News: South West St Catherine member of parliament, Everald Warmington, says the Old Harbour market is sitting on prime commercial land, which he feels should be better utilized.
According to the MP, the land on which the market sits is so valuable, it can fetch enough money to buy a piece of property, build a new market and still have a surplus to go into to the coffers of the parish council.
He says he has therefore advised his local government colleague on the matter and steps have since been taken to sell the current property and find the market a new home.
Residents were notified of this developments at a community meeting on Thursday afternoon, after they questioned whether plans were in place to improve and expand the current facility.
The Old Harbour market was recently refurbished and reopened after it was gutted by a fire in 2016.
