MINISTER KUMAR REASSURES PEOPLE OF VEIVAUCEVA SETTLEMENT

“For any informal settlement, your only one wish is to get the title for your land, and the Fiji Government understands that”

This was highlighted by the Minister for Industry, Trade, Tourism, Local Government, Housing and Community Development, Hon. Premila Kumar during her community visit to Veivauceva Settlement in Tacirua.

“First step in the process, when we want to develop any informal settlement we have to first acquire the developer’s lease.”

She said in order to get the developers to lease 60 per cent of the “Mataqali” (Land Owning Unit) has to agree to the lease.

Minister said that it was last year (2018) that they received the developers lease for Veivauceva Settlement.
