Gov’t to speed up land sales


Persons who have been waiting to purchase land from the government will soon be able to do so.

This is because the government has pledged to  speed up the preparation of lands for sale to the public.

“We are accelerating the preparation of lands for sale to the public. Three government agencies will be involved; the National Housing Development and Urban Renewal Company, the Central Housing and Planning Authority and the Ministry of Agriculture,” a top government official reported.

He said the government will be making ‘a significant amount of lands’ available for sale shortly to satisfy a growing demand for land by residents.

The official noted that the demand for government land continues to grow as everyone wants ‘a piece of the rock’ so that they can build their own homes.

Additionally, the government official disclosed that available land will be sold starting at a cost of $3.00 per square foot which is significantly lower than the cost per square foot of land sold by private interests.

  1. And government ministers and their immediate family who already have a home should not be allowed to purchase these lands without a covenant baring them from selling under 10 years.

  2. ……….Like you speed up lands for ALP Senators, Ministers and party people in Royal Gardens. Some a them done have land and property already.

  3. Two of those so called Government Companies are the responsibility of Maria Browne.She is the Minister of Housing,Lands and Urban Renewal.So the lands would be ready,soon.My guess when she comes back to work from maternity leave.Then again,which Ministry does she works in?She is a full fledged Minister.Then she is a Junior Minister of Legal Affairs with Cutie.I wondered why?Is she being paid 2 salaries monthly? While poor people are suffering daily in Antigua and Barbuda.Who is the top Government official.Max Hurst?
