Programme to Increase Land Titling and Registration Gets Underway April


A public education programme aimed at increasing land titling and registration is to get underway next month.
A sum of $6.3 million has been set aside in the 2010/11 Estimates of Expenditure now before the House of Representatives, for the six-month project, which ends September.
It is being funded by the Inter-American Development Bank, with the National Land Agency as the implementation body.
The allocation provided in the Estimates will go towards revising existing Land Administration and Management Programme (LAMP) brochures and designing new pamphlets.
In addition, titles will be delivered to land owners in selected areas of St. Catherine and St. Thomas; while land titling awareness meetings will be held in Clarendon, St. Catherine and St. Thomas.
Workshops, targeting persons who write wills, will also be held as part of the sensitisation process.
