The handing over of keys to the first fifty (50) three-bedroom moderate-income homes under construction by the Ministry of Housing and Water – Central Housing & Planning Authority (CHPA) at Plot 1768 Cummings Lodge, Georgetown will commence in the next two months.
Minister of Housing and Water, Hon. Collin D Croal, along with CHPA Director of Projects, Mr. Omar Narine and senior engineers visited the construction site over the weekend.
Each home is approximately one thousand and thirteen square feet and contains three bedrooms; a living room; a kitchen with cupboards and a single drain board sink; and one complete bathroom. The construction cost for each unit is $9 million. A number of persons, who previously applied for housing units, have already been prequalified for the homes.
The Minister also announced that the Ministry will be constructing another 100 two-bedroom moderate-income homes in the area, adding to the 200 similar units originally built in the area. Contracts for the construction of these homes are expected to be awarded shortly.
