Although the contract has been signed for the construction of houses for displaced Petite Savanne residents, there is no set budget for this project.
According to Dominica's Planning Minister Dr Colin McIntyre, this is as a result of the changes that are to be made to the plans.
Last week the government of Dominica formally signed a contract for the building of houses for the resettlement of the people of Petite Savanne who were displaced by TS Erika.
The government acquired 49.6 acres of land in Bellevue Chopin for the resettlement and over two million dollars was paid for that acquisition to resettle the residents.
The acquisition was signed with Montreal Management Consultants Est and Dr McIntyre expounded on why there is no set budget for this project.
He says however this will not slow down the construction of the houses.
Dr McIntyre says this project will be used as a model for future resettlement plans.

Meanwhile, Member of Parliament for the Petite Savanne Constituency Dr Kenneth Darroux says he is elated that contracts have been officially signed for the building of houses for the resettlement.
He says he along with his constituents have been under tremendous stress post Erika.
Dr Darroux says this is yet another item on his agenda which can be almost ticked off following the passage of TS Erika in August 2015.
