Little activity on housing project


Added 14 August 2013


A JOINT HOUSING project between ADC Building and Maintenance and  the National Housing Corporation (NHC) appears to have stalled. The West Terrace/Durants housing project was one which would extend the housing area in the districts, placing homes on a previous piece of bushy land. The sign announcing the project reads 72 lots would be made available with land sizes ranging from 3 203 to 6 582  square feet and house sizes from 790 to 1 344 square feet. However, when a MIDWEEK NATION team visited the site yesterday, there was no activity. The work hut  was locked and empty  and its windows broken. Outside, there were trenches with blue water pipes and mounds  of debris piled at various locations. There were about five or six houses  in various states  of construction. (CA)
