Unit opens

THE chairman of the Trustees of Dogotuki Limited have called on itaukei landowners to take advantage of the newly-established Landowners Affairs Unit set up in the Itaukei Lands Trust Board.

Trust chairman Nemani Bulitavu, a member of the mataqali Namako in the village of Dogotuki in Macuata, said most landowners who had been unfairly treated did not know of the newly-established unit with the TLTB which resulted in those landowners taking matters to court.

"We had a matter pending before the court for almost 20 years now, and because of that pending issue there has been no development work done on our piece of land in Macuata," Mr Bulitavu said.

"But through this unit here, we have managed to settle our differences with the other party and we are going to start fresh".

Mr Bulitavo said he was happy the TLTB had set up a unit within its department for landowners.

"Our case was against a review of a piece of land and TLTB had managed to recognise that they were at fault and managed to give us an outcome with two weeks," he said.

"We were supposed to pay $23,764.76 but due to the consultation process that fee had been waived through discussions organised by the unit.

"I am encouraging landowners facing similar problems to visit the TLTB office and get advice from the members of the unit.
