  Fort Rocky will be Jamaica's first entertainment zone. Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Olivia Grange on Thursday announced Fort Rocky in Port Royal as Jamaica’s first Entertainment Zone.


Entertainment zones are areas in which any legal entertainment and sports activities can be staged any time of day or night unhindered as long as the organisers are mindful of the historical values of such sites.


Minister Grange said entertainment zones represent promising economic opportunities through public/private sector partnerships and called on the private sector to take a good look at the opportunities on offer.


While providing an avenue for more opportunities for people in the entertainment business, the Zones which are typically located far away from residential areas, also neutralise the problem of noise nuisance for citizens, Grange said.


The minister added that the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) and the Town and Country Planning Authority had endorsed the Ministry’s declaration that Fort Rocky would be Jamaica’s first Entertainment Zone.
