HUNDREDS OF EMPTY LOTS IN LETHEM WILL SOON HAVE HOUSES WITH GOV’T ASSISTANCE

The Ministry of Housing and Water has identified some 300 empty lots in Lethem and surrounding areas in Region Nine which were long allocated but remain without any structures. The owners of those lots have been presented with the opportunity to construct houses through the government’s assistance programs where some 600 houses will be built at a cost of $3 million each. Housing and Water Minister Collin Croal said the government is not just interested in assisting new allottees but also persons who already have titles and have been unable to build. Beyond this, Croal said the government was looking at a distinct hinterland housing program which will commence soon to ensure equity in the government’s housing efforts. Croal said while the hinterland program is in the initial phase, it will take off fully next year with several subsidy opportunities and a substantive hinterland housing department to be established.
