Around 1,800 housing units are expected to be built on the reclaimed island of Ile Aurore in the north of the main island of Mahe to meet the country’s need, a government official said.
The comment by the Principal Secretary of Infrastructure, Yves Choppy, on Monday comes after the general layout of the Ile Aurore development plan was approved by the Cabinet of Ministers last week.
“In 2017, the government had already worked on a land use plan for the island. It showed which types of infrastructure can be built on this island to meet the different types of demand of the country,” said Choppy.
The land use plan was approved during the time that the government was also working on a similar plan for Victoria.
