Cabinet has approved the award of a contract to start infrastructure work for the Tilston/Bounty Hall Housing Development in Trelawny, under the Sugar Workers Housing Programme.
This was announced by Minister with responsibility for Information and Telecommunications, Hon. Daryl Vaz, at Wednesday’s (October 21) Post Cabinet Press briefing at Jamaica House.
The 27 hectare estate will have 288 serviced lots, with a centralised sewage system. The developers are the National Housing Trust (NHT), and infrastructure work valued at $199 Million has been awarded to DR Foote Construction Company.
This latest sugar housing development was established by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the NHT, the National Workers Union (NWU), the Bustamante Industrial Trade Union (BITU), the University and Allied Workers Union (UAWU) and the management of the sugar estates owned by the Government.
