A new town with 2,500 houses is to be created on the outskirts of Princes Town and work on the infrastructure is expected to get underway from October 1.
Housing Minister Keith Rowley made this announcement on Monday night to supporters at a public meeting at the Triangle, High Street, Princes Town. Princes Town’s expansion has led to its division into two constituencies, Princes Town North, where the established town centre remains and Princes Town South/Tableland, where the development project Rowley spoke of is to be located.
Rowley said Town and Country Planning Division had given the Ministry of Housing the approval to develop the Fairfield/Broomage agricultural estate as part of a plan to develop a town centre within the Princes Town South/Tableland constituency. It will include the 2,500 unit residential community, he said.
“What we are building is a new town centre with all that goes with that: commerce, roads, drains and housing,” he added, and joked that Princes Town may now have to change its name to either “Kings Town or Queens Town.”
In keeping with the development policy for the constituencies, Education Minister and co- ordinator of the Princes Town North constituency, Hazel Manning, announced that a new five- year secondary school is to be built. This is to take place after the deshifting of Princes Town Junior Secondary School, which is to undergo an expansion as well.
Oh fockin gawd! Ah new niggaville. Now here is where you will find ah new set of bandits waiting to decimate the usually pleasant place called Princes Town.
Just imagine Hazel as your member of Parliment. And she promise to build a new school..when? Maybe in time for fockin 2020.
