Interest increases

INTEREST in submitting land into the Land Bank has increased in the Northern Division.

"There have been more submissions coming in from the North," said Lands permanent secretary Tevita Boseiwaqa.

"Right now we are looking at a new site that will be used for mining.

"Most of the land has been used by investors."

He said last year, the North had an increase in submissions compared to previous years.

At the start of the bank in 2010, a total of 240 hectares of idle land on Vanua Levu was deposited into it.

Mr Boseiwaqa said many of the land being eyed for investments had to undergo a feasibility study before it was used.

"With every land that we get, we have to do a feasibility study and that is the normal process."
