By BBN Staff: On Thursday, Minister of Natural Resources took the Lands Department to the people of Dangriga in a mobile land outreach program.
The program is scheduled to go from District to District to assist Belizeans in accessing the services of the Lands Department.
Minister of Natural Resources, Cordel Hyde says that Dangriga and Belize City are facing a similar problem- no national land is available.
“Dangriga is facing the same problem we have in Belize City, there is no national land, basically they are all gone. So ultimately in order for the Dangriga residents to get land in Dangriga, we’ll have to acquire land – we’ll either have to buy it or compensate landowners with land somewhere else and that’s gonna take a little while,” Hyde said.
Hyde says the outreach will be taken all over the country in an effort to reach all Belizeans.
“At the end of the day, we have to take this all over the country; we have to make sure that people in every nook and cranny get an opportunity to own something so that they can get themselves out of poverty and ensure that their children move on with all the added opportunities that come with owning a piece of land,” Hyde added.
