By Anita Nembhard, freelance journalist: Today, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Natural Resources, Cordel Hyde, took his team from the Department of Lands to the village of Ladyville to make the Department’s services easily accessible to residents of Belize’s rural Central Constituency.

Hyde and his team, who have been providing mobile land services across the country for the past year, were in Ladyville Thursday and today, where people could pay their taxes, apply to purchase land on lease, file a petition and many other services that the department offers.

Zonal representative for Belize Rural Central, Dolores Balderamos Garcia, was also there with her constituents as part of the process and responded to a rumor circulating that land was being donated.

“Let me clarify though, land noh di give out. Wi noh di give land,” Balderamos Garcia said.

She noted that the department would have to search areas like Hattieville, Ladyvill and other areas to find house lots before they could be distributed to applicants. She thanked Hyde for making the services available, which saved those who wanted to access them a trip to Belmopan to do so. Baldaramos Garcia also noted that hosting the Lands Department at the Ladyville Community Center was a huge undertaking, which even required increasing the center’s internet capabilities to facilitate the initiative.

She also pointed out that COVID-19 regulations were strictly adhered to throughout the initiative.
