PNQ: No Restitution And No Compensation For The Land Exchanged At Réduit Triangle

Must Read

The Private Notice Question of the leader of the Opposition yesterday morning was based on the allocation of land initially granted to the Mauritius Tamil Cultural Centre Trust and the Indo-Mauritian Catholic Association in Réduit. It was addressed to Steven Obeegadoo,  Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Lands and Housing.

Xavier-Luc Duval asked if Government intends to return the plot of land allocated to the two organizations and exchanged afterwards. He also asked if these plots of land have been allocated to other developers and whether the two organisations will receive compensation for the damage they have suffered.

In his reply, Steven Obeegadoo explained that Government has decided on a new planning scheme. He dwelt on the reasons these plots of land were exchanged. He insisted that at first three of the four organizations concerned agreed to the relocation. However, another one then changed its position.

DPM Obeegadoo stated that there will be no restitution. “Restitution would tantamount to going back to status quo, the more so that three of the four organizations agreed to relocation,” he said. He also insisted that the lands at Réduit Triangle had not been allocated to promoters. On this aspect, he added that the lands were vested to Landscope Mauritius which has already embarked on works. “The lands have been cleared and excavation works are underway,” he underlined.

Obeegadoo also said that the issue of compensation does not arise as there has been no prejudice to any organization.
