  • OVERVIEW OF CHPA’S MEDIUM TERM STRATEGY

 

 

The 2017 budget proposals were prepared within the framework of CHPA’s medium term strategy, which is embodied in its Housing Plan of Action (2016- 2020). The main thrust of the Agency’s strategy within its Plan of Action is to:

  1. Place emphasis on CHPA’s planning function with respect to settlement development and land use control and management;
  2. Re-focus in accordance with its legislative mandate on low income earners and state employees for housing;
  3. Enhance collaboration with LDOs in the land development and upgrading process;
  4. Enhance public participation in the housing and community development process.

Given this strategic direction, the vision for the sector was articulated and the goal and objectives identified to achieve the vision in accordance with Government’s vision of ‘the good life’ for all Guyanese. Within this strategic framework, the priority action areas were identified for which the 2017 budget proposals were elaborated.

 

In keeping with the vision of a good life, the vision articulated for the sector is to create cohesive and sustainable communities. The goal to achieve this vision is to ensure that every Guyanese has the opportunity of living in a decent home, which they can afford, in a community that is safe and secure, offers a sense of belonging, and benefits of a quality neighbourhood in terms basic services and facilities. In this regard the CH&PA would seek to improve the housing delivery system by pursuing a range of settlement development initiatives, which include:

  1. Construction of various housing solutions for low income households through partnership with the private sector and Civil Society Organizations;
  2. Implementation of an integrated and comprehensive approach in the planning and design of settlements and the regularization of squatting areas;
  3. Enhancement of the beneficiary selection process through policy review to ensure proper targeting of low income earners;
  4. Collaboration with Local Democratic Organs to provide adequate community facilities and basic services;
  5. Consolidation of selected existing housing and regularized squatting areas that are deemed critical for intervention through the application of appropriate criteria, supported by comprehensive data compilation and analysis;
  6. Enhancement of the community participation process;

 

In pursuing these initiatives, the following priority areas for action provide the guidance for the preparation of the 2017 budget and the annual work plan:

  1. Housing initiatives for low income households;
  2. Strengthening of CHPA’s planning function;
  3. Consolidation of existing housing areas and regularized squatting areas;
  4. Policy review.

 

The pursuing of these initiatives will ultimately result in the following outcomes and impacts that will be provide the basis for evaluation to determine whether the programme has achieved its goal and objectives:

Outcome: Livable communities, which are:

    • Well planned with appropriate circulation pattern and provision for facilities, in keeping with planning standards;
    • At least 50% occupied; (it is recommended that new areas are developed in smaller phases than currently obtains);
    • Provided with physical infrastructure inclusive of paved roads, access to potable water, adequate drainage and access to electricity;
    • Facilitated with access to amenities such as day care centres, recreational facilities, neighborhood centers, schools, etc.;
    • Organized and have in place Community Groups, elected and functioning, with at least 1 community-based project implemented.

 

  • Working in collaboration with Local Democratic Organs and other stakeholders.

 

 

Impact: Improved Quality of Life through:

  • Increase in security of tenure
  • Increase in home Ownership
  • Improved housing conditions
  • Quality neighbourhoods through the reduction of land use infractions.

 

LIMITATIONS

In the preparation of the 2017 budget proposals, identification of projects to facilitate public sector investments was constrained due the following scenarios:

  1. Lack of an overall national spatial development strategy to guide allocation of resources with respect to the regional spread of programme implementation. However, in the absence of such strategy, the recent census data was used to guide the process. As a consequence, Region#4 may tend to be selected for more interventions.
  2. The need for comprehensive data and financial information on each housing area.  The unavailability of this information to support decision making resulted in a delay in approvals of expenditures for this year. To address this gap, a field audit exercise will be completed this year, along with the compilation of the necessary financial information.

 

  • BUDGET REVIEW (JANUARY – SEPTEMBER 2016)

 

 

2.1 Budget 2016 Performance

 

The approved budget for the year 2016 for CH & PA is made up of G$ 5.8B. This amount budgeted was to be spent from the CHPA’s housing fund, since no subvention for capital and current expenditure was not released from the Consolidated Fund. Total capital expenditure as September 30th 2016, is G$503.4M, which represents 8.6% of the approved budget, while current expenditure stands at G$354.8M and current revenues at G$51.5M.  The projected revenue and expenditure for the remainder of the year is G$190.0M and G$1.124B respectively. The CH&PA is NOT expected to meet its capital expenditure budget of G$ 5.2B for 2016.

 

  1. Infrastructural investments and housing construction programme component – the sum of G$ 5.2B was reflected in the National Budget under this component, which includes; roll over contracts; installation of electrical distribution network; offsite investments for private developers; construction of turnkey houses; infrastructure development works in new areas and upgrading works in existing areas. Based on latest estimate for 2016, the entire sum of G$5.2BM is not expected to be spent by the end of the year.

 

  1. Agency Operations – the sum of G$ 556.0M was reflected as current expenditure in the 2016 National Budget and will be expended by the end of December 2016.

2.2 Current Revenue

 

Based on latest estimates, current revenues have been expected to be G$242.0M by the end of December 2016.

  • 2017 BUDGET PROPOSALS

 

 

In the thrust to give prominence to planning, awareness and renew interest at national, regional and local levels is critical to the work of the CHPA. In this regard, a National Planning Forum will be held this year with major stakeholders to initiate dialogue and action to enhance the current fragmented planning framework. Also, as mandated under the Town and Country Planning Act, the CHPA will initiate and support the preparation of development schemes in collaboration with the LDOs and other key stakeholders to set out objectives and policies to guide the growth and development of communities, whether urban, rural, regional, or other areas. This process will give clout to the enforcement aspect as the planning control activities.  In this regard the enforcement arm of the CHPA will have to be strengthened with the recruitment of additional enforcement officers to boost CHPA’s Planning function.

 

Another key area of the budget proposal will be the consolidation of selected existing housing areas and regularized squatting areas and focusing primarily on the development of low income settlements.

 

The consolidation of areas will not only focus on investment in physical infrastructure, but revitalization programmes that include social services and community development projects in keeping with the commitment to create wholesome and cohesive communities. In view of the limited resources and the need to make informed decisions, the continued investment in the existing housing areas will be informed through current, comprehensive, accurate data and financial information for each housing area.

 

These proposals are part of the Government’s broader Medium Term Strategy that was presented to the Delegation of the Islamic Development Bank. This Strategy articulated a multi-pronged approach to ensure inclusivity, proposes the following components:

  1. The supply of 10,000 housing units to eligible Guyanese;
  2. Expansion of the current Hinterland Housing Programme to other Indigenous communities and households.
  3. Implementation of an Urban Renewal programme in the Capital City in the form of relocation and resettlement of squatters to facilitate the restoration of previously occupied sites.

 

With respect to new communities, these will offer a range of housing solutions: rent-to-own apartments, two-bedroom and three-bedroom wooden houses to cater for the needs of low/moderate income persons. The construction of wooden houses is part of the strategy in keeping with the Government’s plan of pursing the path of a ‘green economy’ and boosting the local materials industry. It is envisaged that the implementation of the various housing solutions will be achieved through partnerships with the private sector.

 

In the establishment of any new community, not only quality physical infrastructure will be provided, but social infrastructure and other amenities that are consistent with improved quality of life for Guyanese.  However, to ensure that some amenities are ready to be used during occupancy, all playgrounds will be cleared and leveled as part of the infrastructure development process. Community groups and LDOs will be encouraged to source funding opportunities for the continued development and maintenance of the playgrounds. Further, the CH&PA will facilitate through community participation, the formation of community groups or specific management teams to manage these facilities once they are completed and the schemes are handed over to the Local Authorities. This is to ensure maintenance of the facilities, as well as maintenance of physical infrastructure and general management of the communities.  

 

In regard to the area of policy, the current land allocation policy in its current form can lead to land speculation and therefore needs urgent review. Important issues to be addressed in the revised policy include, but not limited to the following are:

  1. Applicants’ preferences with respect to location and type of housing solutions;
  2. Rigor and stringency in the eligibility criteria to determine housing need instead of desire.
