Chief Executive Officer of the Central Housing & Planning Association Lelon Saul, on Monday, stated that his agency’s tender board has been opened to contracts for the construction of forty duplexes at Perseverance.
Additionally, Saul highlighted that CH&PA’s vision is to construct single-unit two-bedroom elevated houses at Onderneeming on the West Bank Demerara, Hope Experiment, West Berbice and Ameila’s Ward, Linden, within the next month to six weeks. Perseverance will also benefit from this program.
The CEO further stated that the CH&PA is in the process of engaging private developers, however, further information will be provided before the end of the year.
When asked whether that CH&PA will be intervening in the case of the subsidising of the Two Farm House, on the East Bank of Demerara, Saul said the issue is one of a private matter, while stating Guyana needs proper regulations to govern building contractors in the future.
In May, the CH&PA hosted a housing exposition at Perseverance to highlight various housing solutions being offered by the sub-agency along with local private contractors. Among its exhibits were modern-styled duplexes which were available in wood, concrete and in ground and elevated designs. The CH&PA had committed to continue building after the expo in Perseverance and in other regions later in the year.
