Trinidad & Tobago: Residents grateful as Housing Ministry begins to regularise squatters

Residents at Bois Bande Road, Sangre Grande, can finally breathe a sigh of relief as the Land Settlement Agency has begun to review their cases. 

Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Penelope Beckles-Robinson, along with her junior Minister Adrian Leonce and Member of Parliament for Toco/Sangre Grande Roger Munroe gathered with other officials for a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the area today.  

Beckles-Robinson explained her understanding of the need for the initiative. 

“This administration understands all too well that decent, affordable shelter is a major priority objective for many of our citizens, regardless of their circumstances. Every one of them will tell you that they are desirous of living in a community where paved roads, potable water, functioning sewer systems and electricity are the norm and not the exception,” she said.
