Housing program to generate employment, improve lives


GIS –
A new housing program currently being developed by the Ministry of Physical Development, Housing and Urban Renewal is expected to generate employment islandwide.

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.

  1. Up to now they can't say what the housing project is, how much, where and what kind of "huge employment" the minister is talking about. I'll believe it when I see it...

  2. do, you're damn.
    Do not, you're damn. how can you please lucians. Any investment that generates employment and economic activities is good for the country right now. we all do not trust politicains regardless what party you suport- maybe you don't support any. So stop those bull-shit comments and embrace the investments. I do hope there are more in the pipe line. Lets turn things around lucians.

  4. Where will St Lucians get the money to pay for these House and Land???If the price of the land is very, very, very low, we will buy the land (land do not spoil), but no money to build. So not much employment.

  5. Any form of development is positive and from which some will benefit. The question is who benefits? It's always the same set and I am not partisan about this assessment . That's the way it has always been . Unless you become a party freak, always wearing the colors of identification at political gatherings, or know someone in the right position your chances of gaining from any government initiative is slim. Someone in the ministry of education had the audacity to steal my success from an exam which I had written and handed it on a platter to a student who never wrote the exam and whom as principal, was having an affair with . I had him correct the discrepancy. At the time I was just ok regaining my success but now I feel very bitter about it. Some of them have no soul.

  6. and please ensure that someone properly supervises these projects to avoid extreme cost over runs and also to ensure that the work is done properly and up to standard. Many will certainly benefit from this!
