The Ministry of Housing in collaboration with the Ministry of Labour today fulfilled the dreams long-held by residents of Dazzel Housing Scheme, Paradise, with over 160 land titles being handed over.
Through the efforts of the Ministry of Housing and Water residents were able to receive titles to the lands they had been occupying for a number of years. This was conceived through the Paradise Multipurpose Co-op Society Ltd, which was tasked with getting residents to regularize their lands.
Minister of Housing and Water, Irfaan Ali told residents that their journey had just begun since development has no end. He pointed out that it is a cycle that requires constant work and unity.
Minister of Housing and Water, Irfaan Ali, yesterday visited work sites of projects undertaken by the Ministry and met with residents to get their feedback on housing issues.
The Minister reiterated Government’s zero tolerance on squatting, especially on drainage and sea defence reserves. He disclosed that the Ministry has allocated a total of 9,000 house lots in Region Six thus far, while $1.2 B is slated to be spent in the sector in 2010.
