The Ministry of the Environment advises all roadside vendors with dilapidated, unkempt and or abandoned stalls and lunch vans that these and/or similar structures will be removed from public open spaces by the Department of Physical Planning or Environmental Health Services.

Persons who are engaged in roadside vending should maintain the sites in a clean condition. Further, they are encouraged to maintain their stalls and other structures in a state of good repair as those found in an unsatisfactory condition would be subject to demolition and disposal.

Signage Requirements

The public is also hereby notified that the Ministry of the Environment will not, as a general policy, be issuing permits for the placement of any signs or structures on roundabouts or other traffic instruments in The Bahamas. Any unauthorized signs and/or structures erected or displayed will be removed from these areas and properly disposed of by the relevant government agency.
