THE OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE NEW HOUSE OF PARLIAMENT to be held on June 21st.

 
On September 7th 2004, Grenada was struck by Category 3 hurricane, Ivan. On this day, many buildings and infrastructures were destroyed including Grenada’s House of Parliament.

Since the devastating hit, the members of Parliament were forced to hold their meetings at different venues such as St. George’s University, the Trade Center and Spice Basket. Finally, after 14 years of moving around, Grenada’s parliament will have a place to call home again.

The $22.8 million building was designed by the Caribbean Office of Co-Operative Architecture (COCOA) and built by QuinnCo Design and Construction. This magnificent building is built on the property of the Governor General at Mt Wheldale with picturesque views of the town of St George’s, the Carenage and Grand Anse.

The official opening of Grenada’s new House of Parliament takes place on June 21st.

 
“This was not possible without the help of three governments with cooperation with the government and state and people of Grenada, government of Mexico, United Arab Emirates, and the government and people of Australia.
 
And of course, it is the perseverance, the foresight, the enthusiasm of the NNP Grenada, Carriacou & Petite Martinique government headed by Prime Minister Dr. the Rt Hon. Keith Mitchell which crowned it all – and so next week, this building will become our parliamentary reality.” – President of Grenada Senate, Chester Humphrey
