Cruise scoping update given to EAB

Government and Verdant Isle Port Partners, the consortium of developers picked to build the proposed cruise dock, submitted their scoping update to the Environmental Advisory Board (EAB) Tuesday, on the eve of a court case that will decide the future of this controversial facility.

According to a tourism ministry release, the report was written by Baird, the company that carried out the original environmental impact assessment in 2015 on an entirely different design to the one now proposed.
