|I wonder how they will define 'large families'?|
According to TV6 the HDC is handing out 800 keys to home for Christmas. The Minister said that this is really a backlog so it means its 800 keys to people who possibly have applied for housing years ago.
I don't believe it. They have been saying that since last year and nothing has changed. They're saying because TV6 as well as the Express were pressuring the issue.
Opposite Long Circular Mall there is this 93-unit luxury housing project (former government) where townhouses are being built. The thing is they're 4 years old already and event though people payed almost 50% of it already, the houses are not yet complete and they are not working on it either!
There are so many people crying out for housing from the Housing Development Corporation and they have real serious situations like fire, medical problems and so on, but there isn't enough houses to go around, what's going on?
