Landowners to raise issues with the i-Taukei Affairs
January 25, 2018 7:09 pm
The Ministry of i-Taukei Affairs is calling on landowners to raise issues of land disputes with them rather than putting it out on social media.
Permanent Secretary for i-Taukei Affairs Naipote Katonitabua says they’ve noticed an increasing number of land disputes being discussed on the internet.
Katonitabua says there are departments allocated in the ministry to specifically look into public complaints and i-Taukei landowners should take advantage of this.
“My advice would be is that we are here and the TLTB is there also and more joint consultation can be done for the landowners is for their betterment”
Katonitabua says landowners should also consult with the Ministry prior to leasing their land for development purposes.
