Belmopan. 27th August, 2014.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Natural Resources & Agriculture, Honourable Gaspar Vega in collaboration with UDP Cayo North Standard Bearer, Mr. Omar Figueroa presented 105 Leases to the residents of Bullet Tree Falls Village in Cayo in a ceremony held yesterday in that community.

Of the over one hundred leases issued, 40 were the regularization of documents, and for these first-time lease holders, these papers provided a solution to decades-old uncertainty regarding ownership of the land on which their families reside.

The Ministry of Natural Resources & Agriculture covered the survey & subdivision costs in an effort to provide these families with security and legal rights to their property.

The Ministry continues to hold these handing-over ceremonies throughout the length and breadth of Belize in its ongoing initiative to ensure Belizeans’ access to and ownership of land for their own socio-economic benefit and betterment.
