Thursday,  December 3, 2009  The National Development Corporation  is days away from launching phase two of a comprehensive public education and sensitization campaign on the troublesome issue of  squatting.


According to  the NDC’s Communications and Special events Officer,  John Emmanuel, the campaign consists of a series of radio and television public service announcements  targeting occupiers of the NDC administered lands, largely in the south of the island, where the problem of squatting  is most acute.


“The campaign” Emmanuel says “seeks to explain the processes and steps involved in gaining access to basic infrastructure amenities,   such as water connections and highlights the advantages of  a newly instituted internal procedures that is designed to work in tandem with the water and sewage company’s meterization drive. Now under that meterization drive persons applying for water connection can only do so with permission if the land is yours then you are authorized automatically, if you are leasing or renting then you will need to get permission from your land lord.”


He says the campaign is in keeping with the NDC’s reputation as a model land developer. The NDC is responsible for over four thousand acres of land in the south of the island— the bulk of which is located in Vieux-Fort and Dennery.
