McClean: 253 houses sold at Coverley
As many as 253 houses have been sold in the public/private sector housing venture at Coverley, Christ Church, with another ten expected to be sold this month.
Leader of Government Business in the Senate Senator Maxine McClean made this disclosure today in the Upper House while wrapping up debate on a Resolution to approve the vesting of land at Flat Rock, St George, in the National Housing Corporation for housing development.
“In spite of the economic downturn, Barbadians continue to purchase homes as is the case at the public/private sector housing project at Coverley, Christ Church. They also look to Government to provide housing solutions,” she said.
Meanwhile, responding to the concern expressed by Senator Abrahams as it relates to the delay in the disbursement of funds to landlords whose properties were compulsorily acquired by Government, McClean said: “My father died ten years ago and has not been compensated for land that was acquired by the Government.”
