“If they could help us a little bit we would be in a better place, we would have approvals faster people will be happy, we have applications that are sitting for a whole year now for no apparent reason at all so if they can clean that up.”

Minister for Lands, Jone Usamate says they have established timelines for these surveys.

“If there are any anomalies with the amount of time it takes its better that we get the specific cases so that we can work on the specific cases but generally across the ministry our focus here is making sure that where we have established timelines for any sought of work whether its land lease or concerns and so forth.”
