President Irfaan Ali has announced that an additional 600 house lots will be developed and distributed to residents in several Region Two communities.
The President made this disclosure on Wednesday as he met with hundreds of residents at the Regional Democratic Office in Anna Regina (Pomeroon-Supenaam) during a Presidential outreach.
The Head of State explained that plans for the development of the 600 house lots will be completed within weeks while the infrastructural work will be initiated by mid next year.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Central Housing and Planning Authority, Sherwyn Greaves said the areas identified for the house lots are Charity and Lima Sands.
President Ali, who had a successful outreach last month in Region Six, is currently addressing the concerns of the residents of Region Two. His goal is to reduce the bureaucratic hassle that many persons face.
So far, hundreds of residents were afforded the chance to raise pressing issues; key among them were various challenges regarding housing and land titling.
PRESIDENT CALLS ON BUSINESSES TO FOLLOW COVID-19 PROTOCOLS
Meanwhile, the President urged Region Two businesses to “self-police” to ensure COVID-19 protocols are followed by their staff and customers to help reduce the spread of the deadly disease.
President Ali also reminded the business owners that all staff must wear masks, that there must be proper handwashing facilities available for customers and that workers must constantly sanitise surfaces.
He also directed the National Security Advisor, Captain Gerry Gouveia to immediately host a briefing with the business owners on the existing COVID- 19 protocols and guidelines. (Modified version of Office of the President press release)
