Over the next few hours, 1000 applicants will be allocated with their residential house lot today in Diamond and Grove. This exercise follows the opening of the sixth “Dream Realized” programme for the Ministry of Housing and Water and the Central Housing and Planning Authority.

Susan Rodrigues, Minister within the Ministry of Housing and Water in her remarks said, “This area will be the envy of all our housing schemes since it is strategically located along the East Coast / East Bank Bypass Highway.” Further, the Minister noted that the scheme is contiguous to the existing schemes and more specifically it is on the eastern and southern sections of the said scheme.

Being the second exercise for the East Bank for this year, the Minister said moderate- and middle-income house lots will be distributed in the Block Pln. Grove/ Block Great Diamond housing area. Earlier this year low-income lots were distributed. This area has the potential to generate a lot yield of over three thousand lots inclusive of residential, residential /commercial, commercial, industrial, and the sites reserved for social and economic activities as the area develops.

Furthermore, today’s activity will present allottees the opportunity to interact with a number of financial institutions including the New Building Society Ltd., Guyana Bank for Trade and Industry, Demerara Bank Ltd., Citizens Bank, Republic Bank Ltd, and insurance companies, as they move one step closer to homeownership.

Also present are, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mr. Andre Ally and Chief Executive Officer of the Central Housing and Planning Authority Mr. Sherwyn Greaves, and Chairperson of the Grove/Diamond NDC, Ms. Indranie Ramnarine.
