Housing scheme going strong

Government has issued a statement that the National Housing Development Trust continues to operate as usual following the recent announcement of a Royal Cayman Islands Police Service investigation into a board member.

“There are no accusations relating to the operational or financial aspects of the NHDT. Our offices are open as usual, and we are cooperating fully with the authorities,” General Manager Janet James said.

She said the RCIPS investigation has not impacted the NHDT’s service to its clients and the public.

Established in 2003, the government-owned entity has more than 800 applicants and 75 families already in homes in the Affordable Homeowners initiative; there are 311 homeowners who have benefitted from the Government-Guaranteed Housing Assistance Mortgages and six families that are benefitting from the Build on Your Own Property initiative.

The West Bay and East End housing programmes are continuing, while the ongoing Windsor Park redevelopment is scheduled to be completed within three months, and Bodden Town project is set to commence this year.
