ABACO, BAHAMAS – Demolition crews from the Ministry of Works set out to demolish over 100 structures in the Gaza shantytown in Abaco.

Abaco shantytown residents were given 28 days to move out of the unregulated communities but as Police Superintendent Stephen Carey tells us, many shantytown dwellers didn’t leave before the eviction date.

It’s just the beginning as the issue has been a point of contention for Abaco residents for decades.

Building Control Officer in the Ministry of Works Craig Delancey said the people found in the homes didn’t have the necessary documents to keep their homes.

Hurricane Dorian decimated the Mudd and Pigeon Pea shantytowns in Abaco which housed hundreds of residents. 

During the rebuilding process, residents discovered new shantytowns being developed in other parts of the island. 

Last year, the Davis administration began demolition of shantytowns in New Providence and now have moved into Abaco.

Delancey had this to say about unregulated areas in Abaco.
