Although welcoming the semi-final round of the 2013 Lotto Plus Chutney Soca Monarch to the central borough, Chaguanas Mayor Orlando Nagessar has however expressed concerns about parking facilities and noise levels associated with the show.

The competition’s semi-final round will be held at the Rise car park, Chaguanas on Saturday January 12, with 45 artistes expected to perform before a sellout crowd at one of Carnival’s biggest competitions.

However, in a telephone interview yesterday, Nagessar said his office had already received several calls from concerned Lange Park, Chaguanas residents expressing concern about parking in the residential area which is in close proximity to the venue.

“Although we welcome the show in Chaguanas, there is a problem with Lange Park residents who are concerned about where patrons would park their vehicles,” he said, adding, “residents have been calling this office to express their concerns but we have had to tell them that is the jurisdiction of the police.”

“This is going to be a massive show and the car park is in close proximity to Lange Park and the police have to regulate parking and it is the police who have to give permission for parking,” Nagessar said. In a media statement from the show’s promoters, patrons had been advised that a Park and Ride system had been organised with parking facilities available at the Divali Nagar site.

The organisers had also advised that no parking would be allowed on the streets and environs of the competition.

The Grand Final is scheduled to return to Skinner Park, San Fernando after it was held in Port-of-Spain last year.

Meanwhile, Nagessar said the borough’s Carnival activities would be launched on January 13 at the Market car park, Chaguanas main road, Chaguanas from 5pm. He said the launch would feature ole time mas characters, a cultural show and performances from guest artistes including Super Blue and Bunji Garlin.
