Minister Hyde says Santa Cruz Lands are for Santa Cruz Villagers

Sticking on the topic of lands, viewers will recall the land dispute over some two thousand acres of land between the residents of Santa Cruz Village, Stann Creek and the Belize Wind Energy Limited. In 2020, under the previous administration residents of the village had taken the National Assembly to protest the leasing of village lands to the company. The issue had caused furor among the residents, many of whom lived on the lands that were being leased out, and the village’s council who were looking to expand the boundaries of the village. Today, our newsroom sough an update on the issue from Minister of Natural Resources, Cordel Hyde, who says the deal was crooked from the start.
