RELOCATION OF HOUSEHOLDS IN RIVER ROAD, NARERE

The Ministry is preparing to relocate ten households from the River Road Informal Settlement to the Millennium Lease area. These houses which are currently situated on the drain reserve restricts the ability of the Ministry of Waterways to carry out regular drain maintenance and upgrades in the River Road area.

A series of consultations have been carried out with the households since July 2020, however the relocation was put on hold in April of this year due to the Covid19 outbreak.

In September 2021, the Ministry granted formal approval for these ten families to build new homes within the Ministry’s development lease area in Millennium.

As of today, five families have cleared land to prepare for construction while two more families have already commenced building their homes.

All the ten households have also been granted consent to apply for water and electricity connections for their new homes.
