Brown Hill Housing Development – Nevis, West Indies
September 10, 2008
Minister with responsibility for Housing and Lands on Nevis Hon. Robelto Hector, said he was satisfied with the direction the housing revolution on Nevis had taken.
Mr. Hector made the remark on September 10, 2008, during an interview with the Department of Information. He said two years ago when the Nevis Reformation Party (NRP)-led Nevis Island Administration (NIA) entered office, it recognised the need to make affordable housing available to every strata of the community.
“I am happy to see the housing programme is alive and active and the people of Nevis are benefiting,” he said.
Through the Nevis Housing and Land Development Corporation (NHLDC) the NIA embarked on a comprehensive programme of home construction.
Mr. Hector also explained, that to date a number of persons had benefited from the housing programme and pointed to a special scheme designed for persons in the Administration’s employ, for the first time in the island’s history.
“Under the Civil service Mortgage Scheme facilitated by the Nevis Corporative Credit Union, 28 persons have been approved for housing loans – Civil Servants as well as Non-Established workers who have been given such benefits as established workers – and I am satisfied with the project,” he said.
