The Blue Lagoon beach access public rights case is heading back to court on June 17.

The matter came up in the Portland Parish Court on Monday.

The Jamaica Beach Birthright Environmental Movement, JaBBEM, is one of the plaintiffs in the case. They are seeking to gain access rights to the Blue Lagoon on behalf of the public.

According to JABBEM, Blue Lagoon has seen an indefinite closure and blocking of the designated access road as a result of ongoing construction.

The defendants in the case are the Portland Municipal Corporation and the Jamaica National Heritage Trust.

In court on Monday, Parish Judge Maxine Dennis-McPherson granted the lawyers for the plaintiffs more time to complete discussions with all relevant parties.

She said this could result in the matter going to mediation or coming to another conclusion.
