Cabinet Notes:

The Minister of Housing assured the Cabinet that the provision of starter homes for $110,000- $120,000 consisting of two (2) bedrooms and one bathroom, kitchen, dining and living area, including lighting fixtures and cabinet fixtures, are in great demand.

The Cabinet was informed that families earning around $3,000 are eager to acquire such homes, even to have them built on their own land.

The Antigua and Barbuda Development Bank will be administering the mortgages and the finance is to come from Government’s own resources.

These starter homes will be built all across the country and several will be constructed in City East, in Rural West, in Rural South, in St. Mary’s North and South, and in St. Phillips North and South where crown land is available; although, building on private land will also take place.
