As most community members are aware, there has been an ongoing issue with the laying of the HT line through the Bliss area and the Youth Centre. In order to find a solution to lay this cable, Forest Group and the Youth Centre have decided to call a General Meeting on the subject.

The purpose of the meeting is to share with the community the process which has been followed so far and the viewpoint of the Forest Group and Youth Centre. In order to lay the cable with the least impact to the environment and the YC, we propose to follow an alternate route, detailed in an EIA (environmental impact assessment) carried out at the request of the TDC. This alternate route would allow for a swift implementation of laying the HT line and was the  favoured direction of the stakeholder meeting held at the Youth Centre on November 2nd, 2020, and attended by representatives of the WC, FAMC, GOI Grant Group, TDC, AVES, Unity Fund, FG and YC.
