KINGSTON, Jamaica — Ten families, formerly residents of the Causeway Fishing Village in Portmore, St Catherine, were given titles to their new properties at Portmore Villa by Housing State Minister, Richard Azan.
A total of 16 families, which previously lived along the Causeway, were identified for relocation by the National Road Operating and Constructing Company Limited (NROCC).
The houses were built for the fisherfolk in collaboration with Food for the Poor.
Land Acquisition co-ordinator at NROCC, Peta-Gay Leslie, said the process of relocating the families started in 2009 when they were moved to a temporary accommodation.
She said that the procedure took some time, as it was found that several persons did not have some of the documents needed to receive a title, such as a birth certificate and a Tax Registration Number.
The remaining residents should get their titles as soon as their documents have been processed.
