Chief Planner Gregory Adams said he is supportive of any assessment and possible review of current laws regarding the ownership of land in the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

He said the effectiveness of the current laws should be tested.

“Clearly, there are policies that we need to look at that are already on the books that determine who can own property in the BVI, and we need to assess whether those policies are working ‘properly’, and if we need to address them – and address them,” Adams said.

He further stated that a study looking at a land policy for the BVI is being undertaken. That study, Adams added, differs from the ‘enVision 2040’ assessment that the European Union is funding to help improve land development in the BVI.
