Gov’t to construct 70 homes for Lagoon residents

first_img Tweet Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit (file photo)Residents of Lagoon, Portsmouth who have been experiencing housing challenges, will soon be relieved of that difficulty.That’s because government has given an initial commitment to construct seventy homes for the residents.Minister for Finance, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit gave that commitment during a town hall meeting in Lagoon on Sunday 2 April 2017.He noted that Lagoon has had a “serious” housing challenge for a very long time as most of the people are squatters on private lands and some are renting “on less than adequate housing”.Mr Skerrit said his government has tried in the past to address the Lagoon housing situation and they’ve always maintained that to address the housing condition confronting Lagoon “we needed to find a fresh piece of land to address it”.As a result of this, the Prime Minister said government has acquired twenty-five acres of land primarily to address the housing challenges confronting the Lagoon residents as well as to make lots available to scores of young families who are looking for land to purchase.Thus, land which government previously marked as agricultural lands, are now being sold as residential lots “because people are really looking for any available lot to be sold at a reasonable price to them, and I’m talking here people who are now building in Buck”.“I am committing the government to build, in the first instance, seventy homes on the Cotton Hills lands for the people of Lagoon who are in need of urgent housing,” Mr Skerrit told the residents.“Of course because of the land situation we will have a mix of housing solutions so there will be some apartments and that’s because of the limited land space so there will be apartments, but the idea is to build apartments and homes of no less than two bedrooms for the people of Lagoon,” he explained.Meanwhile, Mr Skerrit said seventy lots been surveyed and will be made available for immediate allocations and two million dollars will be made available “to build the infrastructure, to bring water, to bring lights, and to build roads on these seventy lots”.“We believe if the government remains true to its commitment that we would address a substantial part of the housing problem confronting Lagoon and I give you the assurances that we will construct these homes,” he continued.Government plans to engage a fulltime coordinator to handle all matters related to these homes and lots in the Cotton Hill area.“I’m hoping that, the person can be engaged almost immediately to hold papers and to coordinate all matters relating to these homes, and it’s my intention for us to meet on a regular basis so that we can monitor the progress of implementation, and keep the people abreast of what’s happening because I do not want us to appear to be bullshitters to the people; we have to be very serious about it and we have to do it and do it once and for all,” the Prime Minister said.
