During a site visit on Wednesday April 10th 2019, Environment, Climate Resilience, Disaster Management and Urban Renewal Minister, Joseph Isaac said, “This is in keeping with my promise that I will do all what I can for Roseau North and Roseau Central, and this is the housing component of the urban renewal initiative. We have planned different components for the housing Program, so you will see that apart from Bellevue Rawle, we will also be doing another set of housing units which are climate resilient by the River bank on the northern side of the Roseau River”.
He gave the assurance that construction in Bellevue Rawle will commence within one month, once the land has been properly cleared and the soil has been tested. Meanwhile, MMCE Project Director Chris Timmins said the project “is the continuation of our partnership and commitment to the government, to provide a further 500 residential units on top of those we have already committed to, on the east coast of Dominica, in Bellevue Chopin, and in the north”.
Timmins added that MMCE is also pleased to continue their partnership with China Civil Engineering as they work together on these new units in Bellevue Rawle. He said, “We are pleased to be able to continue our existing partnership with China Civil Engineering who have demonstrated up in Bellevue Chopin, their capability to produce a good quality product capable of withstanding the worst the weather can throw at it”.
