A newly built housing estate at St Louis was officially opened on Saturday.
It was President Danny Faure and the Minister for Habitat, Infrastructure and Land Transport (MHILT) Pamela Charlette who officially inaugurated the Oliver Housing Estate.
Also present were the MNA for St Louis Sandy Arrisol, principal secretary for infrastructure Yves Choppy, principal secretary for housing Denis Barbe, principal secretary for local government Marine-Celine Vidot, district administrator for St Louis Rachel Joseph among other invited guests as well as the new tenants.
The estate forms part of the government's initiative to provide 24 houses in 25 districts in 24 months, which was announced in 2016 and which was to be completed by February 2019.
Since construction on the Oliver Housing Estate recently completed this month, St Louis joins the few other districts which have met the scheduled completion deadline.
It is also the first housing project to have been allocated using the land points system.
The estate comprises five block of 36 units of which 12 are three-bedroom units and 24 are two-bedroom units.
It has been named after the previous owner of the land, Therese Oliver, who transferred the land to the government in 2005 following lengthy discussions.
But it was only in November 2015 that Allied Builders were awarded the contract for the housing project which the construction company was initially expected to complete by March 2018.
During her keynote address, Minister Charlette stated that the Oliver Housing Estate is one of the greatest accomplishments under the 24 houses in 25 districts in 24 months initiative.
She noted that there are 200 housing applicants in St Louis of which 128 are actively contributing to their future homes while 81 applicants are not.
Minister Charlette also gave an overview of the application process which she described as lengthy, intense and emotional.
“It is the first project that allocation was made using the land point system which proritises applicants according to their needs and merit,” Minister Charlette explained.
“Various meetings with applicants were organised and visits were conducted when necessary with the district committee to assess the housing situation of these applicants.”
In this same allocation, her ministry also took the opportunity to address the needs of a few large families who had been residing in bedsitters for more than 12 years.
“This is an opportunity for these families to better cater for their children and create a better environment that will help them flourish [...],” Minister Charlette provided.
A house that caters to the needs of a family, Minister Charlette continued, encourages children to perform better at school and parents to become more productive at work hence contributing to the country’s progress.
Nonetheless, Minister Charlette strongly emphasised on the need for the tenants to be responsible and to honour their agreements with the Property Management Company (PMC).
She asked that the tenants transform their new houses into homes where peace, respect and harmony prevail and become an exemplary community in their district.
Tenants were also requested to ensure their housing payments are made on time.
“I want to highlight that the ministry, through its housing policy of 2018, will not tolerate anti-social activities on this estate,” Minister Charlette stressed.
“This agreement signed with PMC is one which is valid and this agency has the right to undertake any necessary measures with residents who break this agreement, hence I implore you all to avoid actions that could cost you your homes.”
One of the new tenants, Marlene Saunders, also echoed out the same sentiments stating that a house is an investment and that the residents of Oliver Housing Estate should persevere to live in harmony and be exemplary neighbours.
The estate was blessed by Anglican Priest, Reverend Daniel Kalle, after which President Faure and other officials were led on a tour of some of the new homes.
The opening ceremony also included entertainments such as performances by the Belonie School choir, MHILT choir and a visit from Father Christmas for the children of the estate.
St Louis expects to benefit from another stock of government housing in the coming years.

As per the Condominiums Property Act,1996, consolidated to 1 December 2014; all the paid off cases for the clients residing in blocks of flats managed by PMC will gradually transfer to social Condominiums.
On the 9th November 2018, PMC witnessed the signing of transfer for 29 clients out of 40 who have paid off their units from the following estates: Ex Geers – St Louis, Chetty flat- Anse Aux Pins and Rock Lane- Bel Air. This was done before the notary public Mrs. Laura Alcindor Valabhji, who is also a specialist in Condominiums law.
Seven housing projects under the ‘24 houses in 24 months in 24 districts’ programme will not meet the scheduled completion deadline set for February 2019.
However, all the housing projects under this programme, which will consist of a total of 605 housing units, are expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
These particulars were presented yesterday during a presentation held at State House to appraise and assess the ‘24 houses in 24 months in 24 districts’ programme.
Present were President Danny Faure, Vice-President Vincent Meriton, Designated Minister Macsuzy Mondon, various ministers, senior government officials, district administrators and chairpersons of regional councils as well as staff of the Ministry for Habitat, Lands, Infrastructure and Land Transport.
The programme for the construction of 24 houses in 24 districts in 24 months was initially announced in President Faure’s state-of-the-nation address in February 2016.
The ambitious project was set to construct housing units in each district in a bid to address the most deserving cases under the social housing programme.
During her remarks at the presentation, Habitat, Lands, Infrastructure and Land Transport Minister Pamela Charlette revealed that 102 housing units have already been completed in three districts so far.
Additionally, construction is ongoing on 353 housing units in 15 districts while projects in five other districts are expected to break ground soon, wherein 155 units will be constructed pending the relocation of sitting tenants.
The planning processes for two other projects have been completed and her ministry is finalising the procurement procedures, Minister Charlette told the gathering.
