HDC hosts first Housing Distribution Ceremony in 2021

On Monday 1st February, the HDC distributed keys and allocation packages to individuals for homes in Central and South, Trinidad. These areas include Lexus Villas, Harmony Hall; Eden Gardens, Freeport (SMC Initiative); Cypress Hills, San Fernando and Lakeview, Point Fortin.

While delivering the Feature Address, Minister of Housing and Urban Development, the Hon. Pennelope Beckles said "I am sure it hasn’t escaped your notice that in the last five years, the HDC’s housing units being built are much more attractive, desirable and sustainable than the developments we had grown accustomed to."

She noted that "these modern, designed units are better suited to the needs of our applicants and their families, whether they are mortgaged or offered as rentals."

SERVING YOU BETTER

Acting HDC Managing Director, Bryan Jackson indicated that "we know that there is room improvement and we have decided that we must do better particularly in the areas of customer service and providing easier and more flexible payment options for clients.

Jackson opined that “while a number of these service improvements and activities require substantial funding, we are committed to sourcing the requisite funding or finding alternative approaches so that our clients will be well-served and their standard of living will be improved.”

Here are some of the happy moments from the Lexus Villas Housing Distribution Ceremony.
