Green light for development work

Torika Tokalau

ALL development work at several mangrove sites in and outside Suva will go ahead unless the Lands Ministry sees the need to put projects on hold under special circumstances.

Acting permanent secretary of Lands Tevita Boseiwaqa said developments along Fletcher Rd in Vatuwaqa by Rups Industries, in Raiwai by Fulluck (Golden Century Company (Fiji) Ltd), in Nasese by Fiesty Limited and Lami by the Vunimocelolo landowners were approved by the ministry. Traditional heads of the districts Vutia and Suva expressed concern at the continued destruction of the natural environment in the Suva Peninsula earlier this month, claiming it impacted their fishing grounds.

"We're treating each case according to feedback from key ministries as required under the law/policy and qoliqoli owners' consent."
