The Minister of State, together with Jean Castellini, Minister of Finance and Economy, Albert Croesi, in charge of the Mission to the Minister of State for Operation Apolline, and Robert Colle, Secretary General of the Government, spoke about the Government's housing policy during a breakfast with the press on Thursday morning, April 12.
Regarding the Jardins d’Apolline, the Minister of State said that 45 apartments will be delivered at the same time as the renovation work is completed, without affecting the deadlines already announced and pending judicial proceedings.
He added: "In addition, the Government is considering a project, Testimonio 3, which would consist of adding a programme in the extension of Testimonio 2, as the Sovereign Prince also wished."
Jean Castellini said: "In addition to major operations, the Government is working on intermediate solutions based on smaller operations and the development of mobility, including through exchanges. The policy has led, between 2013 and 2018, to the delivery of 552 new apartments, an average of 110 per year, an effort that continues over the period 2018-2021 with the delivery of 451 new homes.
In conclusion, the Minister of State recalled that the Government's ambition was to fully meet the housing needs of Monegasques in the coming years while sustaining the existing social model, a model in full evolution, due, in particular, to population growth.
