THE Environment impact assessment report on the reclamation of the Lautoka foreshore has been completed.

Special administrator Praveen Bala said they had placed advertisements in the daily newspapers with regards to the development of the foreshore.

"The idea is to do the land preparation and that will be the first stage we are going to carry out," he said.

"We would like to see that this project is a win-win situation for the landowners and the council as a whole.

"This is what we have agreed to at the initial stage and I would like to see it continued."

He said the EIA report was sent to the director of environment.

"This week they will come and inspect the area and I'm very hopeful that within two weeks the process will be over and Lautoka City Council will start doing capital works with regards to drainage and other works."
