Residents of South Railway Line, Kitty, are calling on the Mayor and City Council (M&CC), Ministry of Local Government and other relevant authorities to investigate the building of a house on the reserve which they use to traverse.
According to Rohan Samlall of 86, South Railway Line, Kitty, approximately one month ago, persons had begun working in the area on the government reserve with an excavator.
Samlall said he then enquired from one of the workmen at the scene if they knew that it was the reserve that they were working on, since it was noted that the spot was being prepared to build a house.
“The man said he don’t know nothing about that. And I tell him when the owner of the building come if I can see him…the man never show up.”
He said the reserve is used by residents in the area as an entrance and an access road, and can be entered from Middleton Street, but it leads into a dead end. However, after visiting the M&CC and lodging a complaint on several occasions, nothing was forthcoming, and it appeared as if personnel pretended to be unaware of his complaint. Other residents tried complaining in acts of futility.
“When you go to the city council they also promising to investigate, when you go back for an update they always saying they don’t know who put it up.”
Samlall produced a map which showed that the land that was being used is listed as reserve; he said upon investigation he learnt that the spot that was being developed reportedly belonged to a councillor of the M&CC. Samlall explained that he later learnt that in order for there to be any construction, the M&CC had to give approval for construction on the spot.
When Mayor Hamilton Green was contacted he said that he was unaware of the issue and an investigation would be launched to ascertain what was happening.
