In a bid to expedite work at the Mpeasem site ear marked for the relocation of artisans and mechanics at Siwdu, the Coastal Development Authority has currently been rolled on board to give the needed assistance to the Cape Coast Metro Assembly.
Last week, the association of garages at Siwdu petitioned the Metro Chief Executive to postpone their scheduled relocation from July of this year to 2021 to ensure that the new site is properly developed.
Among the issues identified in the petition were the topography of the land allocated for the relocation and the absence of a good drainage system.
The Metro Chief Executive of Cape Coast, Mr. Ernest Arthur, at a follow up meeting with the association announced that the Coastal Management authority was being engaged to facilitate work at Mpeasem.
Speaking to ATL FM News, he was quick to add, however; the relocation exercise would be hinged on the extent of preparation at the new site and not necessarily on the petition by the association of garages seeking an extension to 2021.
Deputy Director of the Coastal Development Authority, Mr. Kingsley Kofi Karikari-Bondzie indiated the readiness of his outfit to render the needed support to expedite work at the site for the smooth relocation of the artisans and mechanics in the shortest time possible.
