Fifteen thousand land titles will be delivered to Jamaicans through the Land Administration and Management Programme (LAMP) during the new legislative year.

Delivering the Throne Speech at Gordon House on February 19, Governor-General, His Excellency the Most Hon. Sir Patrick Allen, said the delivery of titles in part of the Government’s thrust to create an ownership society.

LAMP aims to assist Jamaicans to obtain Certificates of Title for property they occupy, and to update the information on existing land titles.

In the meantime, the Governor-General said an additional 397 housing solutions and 49 infrastructure projects will be provided in Clarendon, St. Thomas, Trelawny, St. Catherine, St. Elizabeth, and Westmoreland under the Sugar Transformation Programme.

The Sugar Transformation Programme is a resettlement initiative that benefits sugar workers and their relatives, who have been living in old barracks located in sugar-dependent areas of the island.

The Throne Speech, titled ‘Partnership for Development: Inclusive Growth…Expanding Opportunities’, outlined the priority programmes and policies to be pursued by the Government during the new fiscal year, which begins on April 1.
