The construction of 76 new units on Phase 2 of Lagilagi Housing Project is expected to cost approximately $9 million. 

People’s Community Network Chairman Father Kevin Barr said work has already commenced at the site and is expected to be completed by next year.                  

Father Barr said there are also plans to have a Community Hall, a Kindergarten and Homework Centre, a small market, a Police Post, sports facilities and a taxi stand.

He said work on these extra services and facilities depend on the finance assistance they are able to foster with interested donor agencies and business communities.

$3 million was provided by the Government in 2014 for the completion of the remaining work of phase 1 and the commencement of phase 2.

The Lagilagi Housing Project is a partnership between 162 families and PCN, where the families pay $12,000 over a period of 12 to 14 years for the construction of their own two or three bedroom units.
