Over four acres of land at Tamavua Village in Naitasiri will be developed for commercial purposes.
This has been confirmed by Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum after the government gave the green light for development following a meeting with the landowners today.
Sayed-Khaiyum says landowners in Naitasiri will now be able to see the fruit of their hard-work after nine years of planning.
“Apart from assisting the landowners and getting them to become true landlords it also contributes to economic growth because when you have more land available for productive use whether it is residential, tourism, commercial or industrial it does contributes to economic growth.”
The piece of land will be developed into residential lots where landowners can sell, rent or lease out.
The project is part of the government’s assistance to the i-Taukei landowners for this year, setting aside ten million dollars for the development of i-Taukei land in the country.
