The Guyana Chronicle writes about Guyana’s “Remigrants Scheme” in at Providence, East Bank Demerara (EBD), where more than 400 lots are still available. Guyanese in the diaspora and local young professionals are being encouraged to take advantage of the house lots.
The scheme was established five years ago by the past administration to provide a North American style of living for Guyanese, but persons were unsure how to access the lands. “We have recommenced allocation of the house lots there so if Guyanese living overseas and young professionals are desirous of owning their own home they can apply to us for a house lot,” said Lelon Saul, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) during an interview with members of the media on Tuesday.
The Authority’s Director of Operations, Denise King-Tudor at the same time explained that there are four categories of lots within the area and the cost of those lots are $4 million, $4.5 million, $5 million and $7 million. She said, in addition to those, there are a few bigger lots with each category that will be sold at a higher cost which would be calculated based on its dimensions. [Note: 4,000,000 Guyanese dollars are about 19,200 dollars.]
Tudor believes that many persons could cash in on the deals once they apply early. She noted that there were 538 lots but 127 were already allocated.
