Over 400 plots of land up for grabs in re-migrant housing scheme
By Devina Samaroo
With more than 400 lands available for purchase, the re-migrant housing scheme, otherwise known as Providence Gardens, is now open to local young professionals.
Conceptualised under the previous administration, the housing scheme was meant to be a luxurious residential community for Guyanese who return home.
However, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA), Lelon Saul told reporters on Tuesday, February 6, 2018, that persons living in Guyana are also encouraged to apply.
The Agency’s Director of Operations, Denise King-Tudor explained that there are several options available in this high-end housing scheme.
She said the prices of house lots are set at $4 million, $4.5 million, $5 million and $7 million.
“In addition, there are a few very big lots and those lots are sold at higher costs…we would calculate, it’s per foot square foot cost and so based on the size, the dimensions of that particular lot, we’ll calculate that,” King-Tudor explained.
According to information on the CH&PA’s website, the plot sizes range from 6000 to 8000 square feet. Tudor-King explained that the scheme consists of 538 lots and so far, 127 have been allocated.
