Guyana: Illegal Concrete Factory Ordered to Cease Operations Immediately

Proprietors of an illegal industrial facility adjacent to South Ruimveldt Gardens, have been ordered to immediately cease all operations.

Minister of Housing and Water, Collin Croal and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Central Housing & Planning Authority (CH&PA), Sherwyn Greaves, visited the location today, where two men identified as representatives were served with a third Contravention Notice. Croal said that based on the CH&PA’s land use policy, the parcel of land has not been approved for industrial activity and the relevant agencies were not engaged.

“As a government we welcome investment, but there is a proper manner in which investments are to be done and the first agency that is involved in permits for construction and commercial purposes is the Central Housing and Planning Authority… However, no application was done and secondly when the Central Housing and Planning Authority team came to serve that [first] contravention notice, they were met with a hostile environment,”  Croal said, according to a release from CH&PA.
