For some time now when Dormaa wood village (timber market) has been shut down operations in the Municipality.
Today, 5th February, 2021, the carpenters in the Dormaa Central Municipality extended appeal to the Municipal Chief Executive, Honourable Drissa Ouattara to restore the operations of the wood village.
This is as a fact that since the wood village was shut down by the Hon. MCE, there have been scarcity of wood for their works.
In a flashback, the wood village was asked by the Hon. MCE to stop operations due to the illegal felling of trees for timber in the area especially from the forest reserved by government.
The orders from ministry of forestry together with the Dormaa Central Municipal Assembly put ban on the wood village operation.
The Dormaa wood village was one of the largest timber markets in Bono region and people from Burkina Faso and within Ghana trade at the wood village.
That business activity has been there since the inception of the timber market until recently when some obstinate intruders started felling trees for timber anyhow from the government reserved forest situated mostly in between Nkrankwanta and Dormaa Ahenkro. This deliberate and failing to comply and obey the Assembly's rules, led to the shutting down the timber market.
The carpenters and timber workers are now appealing to the Assembly to restore the market because they do not get raw materials (timber) for work.
Eventually, to the entire community, wood or timber and its products are now costly and chain-saw dealers and operators are also complaining of economic hardship since there is no productivity and business for their operations.
