UDC land dilemma
THE URBAN DEVELOPMENT Commission (UDC) is facing two new trends.
There is a growing influx of men seeking the UDC’s help. And relatives of people who have gained assistance from UDC are asking the Government agency to remove the house from their land.
Speaking to the WEEKEND NATION yesterday during UDC’s Open Day, at its Bridge Street location, director Derek Alleyne said the growing reality where relatives who inherited land were forcing UDC to relocate houses at a cost of $30 000, was becoming a burden on its already tight budget.
“We need to get some more housing spots from the Ministry of Housing so that we don’t have to put houses on people’s land,”Alleyne said.
