Development Plan Commences to Enhance the Layou Community
The community of Layou has taken the initiative, to embark on a drive to combine the fishing industry with tourism, in an effort to gain economic and social development within the area.
Chairman of the Layou Improvement Committee, Mr. Lazar Charles, says a development plan for the village is in progress.
The committee also intends to build a permanent stage and gazebo on the beach, to tie together the fishing and tourism industry.
Funds have also been secured from Basic Needs Trust Fund, which is presently being utilized for the construction of a public convenience for the community.
Mr. Charles is confident about the development plan for Layou and hopes that these changes will help foster employment and progress within the community
