PLH buy Palmetto Hotel lease

The lease for Palmetto hotel, said to belong to Derek Barrett, has been sold to PLH (Discovery Land Company) for between US$10m and $15m (it depends who you ask…) giving PLH nearly the whole of the south coast of Barbuda and more, right up to the village wharf. This is a reminder of the ‘ransack’ that took place years ago when Council could have had that same lease back.
