Friday, June 15, 2012


THE National Housing Trust will next week begin accepting application for 841 houses and serviced lots in Longville Park Phase III, of which 168 are specially subsidised for contributors earning between minimum wage and $10,000 weekly.

Qualified contributors are asked to submit their applications at the nearest NHT office between Monday, June 18 and Friday, June 22.

The units and lots, which were advertised on Sunday, consists of 300 two-bedroom units, 173 one-bedroom units, 140 studios and 228 serviced lots.

The prices vary according to size and elevation. "The prices for serviced lots range from $1.5 million to $3 million, studio units from $3.2 million to $4.2 million, one-bedroon units from $4.9 million to $5.6 million and two-bedroom units from $6.7 million to $7.3 million.

"Except for serviced lots, the subsidies reduce the regular prices by a minimum of $300,000. Serviced lots are sold at the regular price however, and the NHT will offer a grant to assist with construction," the Trust said in a release.

Longville Park is located just outside Freetown in Clarendon and is second only to Greater Portmore in terms of large- scale development in Jamaica. The development welcomed its first set of residents in 1993 and has blossomed into a vibrant community. Longville Park has an active citizens' association and over ten active clubs involved in various sports, environmental activities, theatre, culture and health promotion. Among their achievements, Longville Park won the 2007/2008 NHT Best Schemes competition, and with funds they obtained from the National Health Fund, residents built a jogging trail and a multi-purpose court for exercise and sporting activities.
