Stabroek News Sunday - - REGIONAL NEWS -

The Cen­tral Hous­ing and Plan­ning Author­ity (CH&PA) will to­day be­gin a se­ries of con­sul­ta­tions with res­i­dents of Sophia on the re­for­mu­la­tion of the Road Net­work Up­grade and Ex­pan­sion Pro­gramme.

In a brief state­ment, the CH&PA said the first pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion will be held at the Sophia Pri­mary School at 4pm to­day.

A CH&PA of­fi­cial told Sun­day Stabroek that aside from to­day’s ac­tiv­ity, four other con­sul­ta­tions will be held; two on Septem­ber 17th and an­other two on the Septem­ber 24th.

The tar­get ar­eas, the of­fi­cial said, will be Pat­tensen Turkeyen (Sec­tion B), Turkeyen (Sec­tion C and D), Block X Lilien­daal (Sec­tion A), Block AA and BB Sophia (Plum

Park), Sec­tion C Cum­mings Lodge (Cum­mings Park), Block E Sophia (Farm­ers’ group), Block F and Block R Sophia.

It was ex­plained by the of­fi­cial that the pro­gramme, which is to be funded through an In­ter-Amer­i­can De­vel­op­ment Bank loan, would see the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of roads, the in­stal­la­tion of street lights, side­walks, the con­struc­tion of core homes, and the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of com­mu­nity grounds and cen­tres in the iden­ti­fied sec­tions of South and North Sophia.

The of­fi­cial said that hold­ing pub­lic con­sul­ta­tions was among the cri­te­ria for the loan, with the in­tended aim of giv­ing res­i­dents the op­por­tu­nity to have an in­put and to ex­press their con­cerns, if any, as it re­lates to the pro­gramme.

Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Di­rec­tor Glad­win Charles, an en­gi­neer and other of­fi­cials of the Author­ity, will be in at­ten­dance at the con­sul­ta­tion.
