Agricultural Land: land that is capable of being used for the purposes of agriculture

Agricultural Land: land that is capable of being used for the purposes of agriculture

Agriculture: includes horticulture, fruit growing, seed growing, dairy farming, the breeding and keeping of livestock (including any animal kept for the production of food, wool, skins or fur or for the purpose of its use in the farming of land), the use of land as grazing land, meadow land, market gardens and nursery grounds and the use of land for woodlands where that use is ancillary to the farming of land for other agricultural purposes.

Antiquities Advisory Committee: a committee consisting of representatives from the National Trust, the Barbados Museum and Historical Society, the Barbados Institute of Architects and any additional nominated body, responsible for providing comments on development applications which may impact Listed Buildings, Cultural Heritage Conservation Areas or Archaeological Areas or Monuments.

Building line: an imaginary line or lines at a specified distance from and parallel to the centre line of a road which demarcates that area on one or both sides of the centre line of the road within which no building, other than such fences, walls or gates as may be permitted, may be erected.

Cash-in-lieu of parking district: an area designated by the Chief Town Planner, usually located in an older central business district of a community, where, as an alternative to constructing required parking spaces applicants may provide the government with a cash payment equivalent to the value of these parking spaces. This money is to be used solely for the purpose of providing communal parking facilities within the district. Cash-in-lieu of parking is intended mainly for traditional urban areas where, due to small lot sizes, intensive development and fragmented ownership patterns, it may not be possible or desirable to provide on-site parking.

Community Improvement Area: districts within Community Plans which require specific attention in order to improve and enhance their physical characteristics. Community Improvement Areas may include under-serviced and poorly maintained residential neighbourhoods, underutilised public lands, and underutilised and poorly maintained open spaces. Community improvement opportunities focus on improvements to publicly-owned land and facilities such as roads, sidewalks, street lighting, landscaping, and associated public policy initiatives to improve the built environment.

Conceptual Pedestrian Links: a conceptual system of pedestrian walkways following major gullies and watercourses between Bridgetown, Holetown, Speightstown and the National Park.

Conservation Uses: include forestry, natural regeneration, soil stabilization, wetland regeneration, certain agricultural uses such as fruit and seed growing, nurseries, horticulture and other similar uses and activities with minimal impacts on the natural environment.

Cultural Heritage Conservation Areas: groupings of buildings or structures projecting a unique architectural character which may be representative of a historic architectural style and/or reflect some aspect of the history or heritage of the community. Cultural Heritage Conservation Areas may include buildings listed by the National Trust, other buildings and structures, as well as parks and open space areas.

Industry, Light: an industrial operation in which the processes carried on or the machinery installed are such as could be carried on or installed in any residential area without detriment to the amenity of that area by reason of noise, vibration, smell, fumes, smoke, soot, ash, dust or grit, and includes a petrol filling and service station but not a garage or scrapyard.

Industry, Special: an industrial operation where the processes are obnoxious or dangerous to health and amenity by reason of excessive smell, fumes, smoke, dust, grit, ash, noise or vibration and in particular for the purposes of processing by chemical means, the burning of lime or bricks, the screening or crushing of stone, the manufacture of chemicals (other than pharmaceutical drugs), the processing or storing of animal or vegetable wastes for any purpose.

National Park: The eastern portion of Barbados, including adjacent marine coastal areas, has been designated as the Barbados National Park. The objectives are to conserve the natural and cultural heritage of the area; foster an awareness of the value of this area to residents and visitors; promote sustainable land use and to discourage uses which are detrimental to the landscape, seascape and environmental qualities of the area; and to promote appropriate recreational, tourism and economic development opportunities in this area.

Natural Heritage Conservation Areas: applies to both public and privately owned features and locations that are important to the natural and physical heritage of the island for at least one of the following reasons:

  1. the area serves an important ecological function such as providing a migratory stop-over for wildlife or a corridor linkage with other natural areas;
  2. the biophysical characteristics of the area serve an important hydrological function such as recharging groundwater supplies, protecting groundwater quality, regulating stream flow or maintaining water quality;
  3. the area exhibits a high diversity of plant and animal species;
  4. the area encompasses geological features and/or natural biotic communities which are considered rare or poorly represented on the island;
  5. the area provides habitat for species which are considered rare, threatened or endangered.

Permitted Uses: Agricultural areas shall be reserved primarily for agriculture and farm-related uses, including buildings and dwelling houses related to agricultural operations. Other permitted uses shall include essentially rural activities such as forestry, conservation and open space. Small scale tourist and recreational uses, or commercial or industrial uses related to agriculture, may be permitted in surplus plantation yards.
