Tuesday, November 7, 2006 - Work has begun on to prepare a site at Monchy for the relocation of another batch of Conway residents.

Prime Minister Dr Kenny D. Anthony confirmed that site preparations are already under way for the second phase of an overall relocation programme for Conway residents.

Dr Anthony confirmed that under Phase Two of the three-phase project, some $800,000 has been allocated to facilitate the relocation of some 30 households from Conway to Monchy, where 42 acres of land had already been earmarked for the project.

The Prime Minister said the households to be relocated have been offered an attractive deal that includes an opportunity to purchase a house-and-land package or to purchase a house lot in the designated area.
The relocated residents will also be given title to the lands, which can then be used as collateral for loans to build new homes.

The relocated area under construction, the Prime Minister said, will also be availed of all the necessary amenities such as roads, water, electricity, garbage collection and disposal.

The government will also provide the relocated households with cash and exemption of such government services as registration of title deeds.

Some 26 households have already been relocated under Phase I of the project, which is aimed at relocating some 115 households from Conway.

The Government of Saint Lucia has allocated over a million dollars to the entire Conway relocation exercise.
