According to Minister for Physical Development, Housing and Urban Renewal, Sen. Hon. Stanley Felix, the program will enhance livelihoods in a variety of ways.
“Not only will it create avenues for persons to own land, but it will also create huge employment around the island,’ he said.
“We’re doing every single constituency, even if we start with seven or eight constituencies. But there’ll be employment in all those different constituencies at the same time. It would also give persons the opportunity to commence their housing construction.”
The Sights and Services Program was announced by Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, The Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony, in his 2014/2015 budget address. It involves identifying lands island-wide for locals to purchase.
