Thursday, July 31, 2003 - Scores of residents of the Debarras Community in Babonneau are now proud owners of lands and a new access road which will facilitate easier traffic within that community. The project was initiated by the Programme for the Regularization of Unplanned
Development (PROUD), in the Ministry of Physical Development, Environment and Housing.

Speaking at a presentation ceremony Tuesday, Parliamentary Representative for Babonneau and Minister for Communications, Works, Transport and Public Utilities, Honourable Felix Finisterre, called on the Debarras residents to look upon such developments as a positive move. According to Finisterre, while some may see development essentially as large infrastructural establishments, the people of Debarras now have the opportunity to own lands and should consider this occasion as a remarkable achievement.

Meantime, Prime Minister Honourable Dr. Kenny Anthony, advised the residents to embark on a beautification project of their homes and the community. Such an initiative, according to the Prime Minister, will undoubtedly lend additional value to the land.

Two thousand feet of road were constructed and 28 house lots were made available under that project, costing just above $EC400, 000.
