Entertainment Minister, Olivia Grange, says the Government doesn’t support the staging of major events without its superintendence at sites along the Palisadoes strip leading to the Norman Manley International Airport, NMIA.

This as the Palisadoes Highway was blocked by partygoers attending the popular party ‘Sandz’, yesterday.

The gridlock caused significant delays for airline staff and passengers travelling to and from the airport.

Minister Grange says the government recently declared Fort Rocky the first entertainment zone.

This area is located on the way to Port Royal after passing the NMIA.

Meanwhile, Minster Grange says the government is working on an oversight tool that will streamline the events’ approval process.
