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.

70 single houses will be built to relocate the Broad and Lombard Street squatters, each costing $1.2M, with funding provided by the Ministry of Communities and Food for the Poor. This was disclosed during the ministry’s mid-term review and budget proposal held at the Regency Hotel, Hadfield Street.

The Central Housing and Planning Authority (CHPA) is currently engaging financial agencies including the Inter-American Bank (IDB,) to secure funding for low cost housing. This is to assist persons squatting on Government reserves.

All the government duplexes, be it single or flat, concrete or wooden, will cost $6.8M. This was disclosed by Minister within the Ministry of Communities, Valerie Adams- Patterson during an interview with the Department of Public Information/Government Information Agency (DPI/GINA) today.

Perseverance on the East Bank of Demerara will be the model community for sustainable development as the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) pursues a more community based housing development plan.

The Central Housing and Planning Authority CH&PA within the ministry of Communities on Friday, June 16, 2017 held a workshop for the clerks of works.
