THE Fiji National University is eyeing Fenner Park and part of the botanical gardens in Lautoka on which to build a medical campus.
But the Lautoka City Council says while they welcomed FNU's expansion plans, the botanical gardens was out of the question while the availability of Fenner Park would be decided in a stakeholder' meeting.
During the FNU graduation on Wednesday, vice- chancellor Dr Ganesh Chand said during meetings of stakeholders in Lautoka — which included the council and Commissioner Western — agreement was reached on a number of projects.
"In addition, the Lautoka City Council has been very generous to accept our request for additional land which, at the moment, is under their custody," Dr Chand said.
"For that, they have decided to call a stakeholders meeting within the next two weeks where our proposal would be put to the stakeholders to give a part of the land which is now known as Fenner Park and part of the botanical garden to FNU to build a $30million medical campus.
"We are also in the planning stage of developing a campus for technical training in Lautoka.
"Discussions are ongoing with the National Training and Productivity Centre and the government on the allocation of land."
