NPP Brikama Area Council Chairmanship Candidate, Seedy Ceesay, has said that the West Coast Region lacks a master plan, and that without one, it will be difficult to develop the region.

“On the basis of our observation and the majority opinion of the council, the following challenges are relevant to highlight for policy and administrative consideration; Challenges in Planning: The state of affairs of the West Coast Region is as a result of the inadequacy failure of the Brikama Area Council to set up common sense plans and implement them effectively. The BAC is central to the development of the West Coast Region, it is the government organ responsible for service delivery, community driven development and planning initiatives. 

“Since no development entity in history has ever attained any meaningful development without creating rational plans both in the short, medium and long term. In this regard, Brikama Area Council failed woefully to have a plan that progresses with the development of the local government authority. The region lacks a master plan. Such a catastrophic failure would make it harder for any effective infrastructural development today much more in the future,” he said through his manifesto obtained by Kerr Fatou.

The NPP candidate said Brikama Area Council is one of the most densely populated administrative regions and the second most powerful revenue-based council in the country and if its resources are utilized properly, it can lead to more developments in the region.

“It (West Coast Region) has a revenue potential that, when properly and effectively utilized, can bring about unprecedented development to its inhabitants. Sadly, this reality is far fetch considering the multiplicity of challenges that it is faced with,” he said.

Seedy Ceesay is the National People’s Party (NPP) candidate for Brikama Area Council (BAC) Chairmanship election.
