To help reduce the huge housing deficit in the country, Planned City Extension Project under the auspices of Cities and Habitats has announced lucrative housing package for civil servants and government workers.
Addressing the media at the launch, the Project Manager of the Planned City Extension’s Rent-To-Own, Daniel Ohene Aidoo, disclosed that Rent-to-Own is an income responsive housing or income-based housing project to ease the pressure on civil servants and government workers.
He stated that the project is demand driven.
The two options that one can choose from are; two-bedroom semi-detached house starting from GHc550.00 for a 25-year-period at a total cost of GHC364,967.76 and a three-bedroom at GHC770.00 yearly for a 25-year-period at the total cost of GHC509,754.12.
On funding sources, Mr Aidoo said that financial obligations are on the shoulders of Cities and Habitats.
He said plans are far advanced to go to other places as many people are interested in the project.
Meanwhile, Mr Aidoo revealed that there are other packages for private workers and media persons.
