State Minister in the Ministry of Entertainment, Damion Crawford, in response, said the approval by NEPA was timely, given the number of events expected to take place during the upcoming Christmas season.

NEPA has put measures in place to ensure that protection of the environment is given priority during the staging of entertainment events in the area.

The Palisadoes zone was one of seven areas in Kingston that were tested and declared suitable to host recreational and heritage activities. The move to establish entertainment zones is to allow for the staging of events under limited restrictions in terms of lock-off time, and prevent breaches of the Noise Abatement Act.
