Planned projects will change the face of Limassol

Interior Minister Nicos Nouris

Interior Minister Nicos Nouris was in Limassol on Tuesday to review progress in a number of projects, including an affordable housing initiative.

In statements after a meeting with Mayor Nicos Nicolaides, Nouris said the projects discussed would change the face of Limassol.

He singled out a large project being carried out in consultation with the Cyprus Land Development Corporation (CLDC) to build homes as part of the affordable housing and affordable rent schemes as well as other town planning projects.

Tuesday’s meeting aimed to resolve problems being faced with some projects.

“I believe we had a constructive discussion. We looked at specific problems and specific replies and solutions were given,” Nouris said, adding that officials would be closely monitoring progress.

Efforts will focus on projects that are considered ‘mature’ and those that can move forward this year, while those that have problems will be scheduled for next year.

For his part, Nicolaides said the discussions had covered the affordable housing plan, as well as town planning projects such as phase B of connecting Franklin Roosevelt avenue with the coastal road, the bypass of Ayia Phyla centre through improvements to Andreas Papandreou street and the plans for Grivas Dighenis avenue and Gladstone street.

He said the meeting had been productive with decisions taken to move forward with these projects based on a time plan.
