    PRESS RELEASE

    Regularization of Lease in Silk Grass and Trio Village

    Belmopan. 2nd October, 2014. The Ministry of Natural Resources & Agriculture informs that Lands Department Officials will be visiting the villages of Silk Grass in the Stann Creek District and Trio in the Toledo District on Tuesday 7th October, 2014 to meet with residents to resolve and rectify the land demarcation issues for leases issued to the residents of those villages.

    In Silk Grass Village these issues arose from the 2007 distribution of 162 lots/leases without an official demarcation of the land. In the absence of an official survey plan residents were unable to acquire legitimate land documents and pay appropriate property taxes. In a similar case, 261 lots/leases in Trio Village 261 require regularization.

    The Ministry of Natural Resources & Agriculture has taken corrective measures to properly survey the land and develop an official authenticated survey plan of the subdivision.

    The Ministry continues to conduct these exercises throughout the country in its ongoing effort to regularize and ensure land security for Belizeans.

    End.
