[www.inewsguyana.com] – The APNU+AFC government is looking to wrap-up the development of recognised housing schemes and is therefore encouraging defaulters to start construction.
According to the Government Information Agency (GINA), the Administration is urging persons, with allocated lots in these areas, to be part of the construction, since this is essential to completing these housing areas.
In this regard, Minister within the Ministry of Communities, Keith Scott has indicated that no longer will the Ministry give ears to those who cry that they have not taken up their lot, because these housing areas are without adequate infrastructure and supporting facilities and amenities.
“….people cannot just come to us, get a house lot and just stay back and say that they are waiting for everything to be 100 percent,” he said.
According to GINA, the Minister explained that persons need to understand that bringing about developments is a two-way street.
He noted that there will also always be areas that need to be addressed to make people feel comfortable, “but you also need to understand that going into a new area is a pioneering spirit, when you go there, we expect you to come in and let us collectively work to enhance the place as quickly as possible.”
In wrapping up the infrastructure development in these areas, Minister Scott said that the housing engineers have been looking at the roads, water, the installation of infrastructure for electricity, and also at areas, where they can put in playfields.
“There are many young Clive Lloyds and Rohan Kanhais, awaiting just the opportunity…,” Minister Scott pointed out.
