Achievements Phillip Feany Paulwell

Port Royal

Heritage Project

I was very pleased to hear at a PAAC meeting recently that the Norman Manley Airport Divestment team is promoting Port Royal as part of its marketing efforts. The possibility of Port Royal becoming a major cruise shipping location is still real. The airport would be even more viable if it is used as a hub for cruise shipping passengers. This could be the major jolt that provides new impetus to the development plans for Port Royal. There has been much work done so far in the revitalization of many of the historic sites. Fort Charles for example has seen major renovation, so too has the Old Naval Hospital, the Admiralty Houses have been restored, the building of a multi media theatre, among other things.
The original plans had no mention of water, sewage, housing and training; Phillip Paulwell insisted on these things including resisting stoutly the removal and demolition of houses and businesses owned by Port Royalist.


On May 23, Labour Day, annually, I participate in the usual partnering with the community groups where materials are needed and refreshment provided to persons who volunteer in different projects across the Constituency. The two major projects I participated in this Labour Day was the clean up and rehabilitation of Penso Park in the Springfield Division and the Construction of two bathrooms for two families who were in need of proper restroom facilities.
