The interior ministry said on Friday it has the “clear intention to proceed” with the construction of housing for 600 low-income families in Limassol.
They added, “for this reason, the project is one of the main pillars of the new integrated housing policy, which is being formulated by the interior and finance ministries and will be announced in the coming weeks.”
“The issue of housing is a top priority for the Christodoulides government and for this purpose it is working on various measures with an emphasis on affordable housing, to support socioeconomically vulnerable people.”
The announcement comes two weeks after interior minister Constantinos Ioannou denied reports that the project, which will entail the construction of a total of 138 apartments, was “hanging in the balance.”
He had said “there is no ‘red flag from the government. On the contrary, the housing project is moving forward.”
