Commission completes village boundary demarcation
May 24, 2018 6:27 pm
The i-taukei Lands and Fisheries Commission has completed the demarcation of all village boundaries in the 14 provinces throughout the country.
I-taukei Affairs Board Deputy Secretary Josefa Toganivalu says the surveyors have completed their work, the results of which will be put into their database.
Toganivalu told FBC News the biggest issue they faced during the exercise is getting the approval from landowners for the demarcation process.
The demarcation of any village boundary will only be carried out if landowners give their consent.
In instances where there are disputes, the surveyors go to the next village.
“We had problems regarding some of the landowners who were not willing to give their lands and they are still discussing regarding the land to be demarcated for the villages.”
Villages that have not been attended to are urged to contact the nearest Provincial Council office.
