The Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) has held a meeting with the various stakeholder groups involved in the operations of the La Pleasure beach resort.

The meeting held on Wednesday 13th June, followed the clamp down and closure of the facility by the Authority and was to discuss the findings of the joint inspection exercise embarked upon by the GTA and EPA and set various timelines of activities aimed at the re-opening of the facility.

The meeting chaired by GTA- CEO, Akwasi Agyeman was attended by Nii Oten Granaky I, Chief of Abafum representing the LA traditional council, Executives of the LA Community youth group, Mr. Kwadwo Antwi , CEO of GTDC and officials of EPA.

After the presentation of the findings by Mr. Alex Boakye, Manager of Quality Assurance at GTA, Nii Granaky I, expressed his displeasure of the state of the facility and affirmed the support of the council for the Authority and EPA to carry out its mandate.

He urged the various stakeholder groups to work together as part of the IMC to ensure La pleasure beach is restored to its pride of place as a leading tourist facility.

Mr. Agyeman on his part, outlined a series of immediate, short, medium and long term actions. Immediately and in order that some of the facilities in the resort who meet the required standards are not inconvenienced and financially over burdened, a thorough clean up is to be embarked upon.

The joint team will then re-inspect the facility and potentially re-open if the sanitary conditions are found to have improved. In the short term, the IMC has been urged to relocate the washrooms and build a mordern facility with enough capacity for patrons.

Medium to Long-term, the authority will work with the stakeholders on a new land use plan and redevelop the facility into a morden Tourism haven. The EPA has committed to work with GTA on such joint exercices to improve sanitary conditions at our tour facilities.
