The Codrington Estate and Codrington College are considered to be among the most significant and attractive locations in Barbados. Both the Estate and the College have tremendous potential as a multi-faceted asset which is ripe for maximization and which could be used to the optimum benefit of both Barbados and the wider Caribbean Region in the short, medium and long term.
Several alternate development options were considered for the redevelopment of both the Codrington Estate and Codrington College from the perspectives of Land Use and the Environment, Agriculture, Horticulture and Fisheries, Tourism Development and Community Engagement.
An innovative Re-Development Master Plan has been developed in partnership with a thrilling young design company, aimed at positioning Codrington to be a premier Visitor Experience for tourists and locals alike seeking a fresh, immersive package which incorporates heritage, spiritual, therapeutic, rehabilitative and renewal aspects. Above all, the intent is to craft Codrington as a special space where the intersection of legacy, contemplation and re-discovery is like nothing to be found anywhere else.
