GULU- Establishing Low-cost housing in Gulu City would be a good investment to cater for low-income earners, Jackie Kemigisha Kiza, the Commissioner for Urban Development in the Ministry of Local Government has said.
Kemigisha said the remarks on Monday while commissioning a draft physical development plan for Gulu City, where she said low-cost housing needs the government’s financial support.
She noted that the proposed plan is a milestone for Gulu City as it will bring about planned infrastructural development. However, she said the new plan should also cater for low-income earners, who she said could be supported with alternative financing models to access low-cost housing.
The official further said that the new development would widen the revenue base for Gulu City Council, adding that other cities and urban authorities across the country could adopt the new development plan.
