The Local Government Ministry has developed twenty-five leases so far to cater for the informal settlers.
Minister, Parveen Bala, says this will provide fair rent and premium and will also benefit the land owning units.
“My Ministry of Local Government and the Itaukei; Land Trust Board entered into and MOU for the issuance of development lease to enable TLTB and my ministry to meet one of the national objective to the government which is to provide affordable houses and land lords to those who do not have access to residential land and proper lease.”
Bala says the development has benefitted more than 17 thousand families.
He adds Towns and City Councils should also be ready to provide services to informal settlements in their municipality.
The twenty-five leases were developed in the Western, Central and Northern Divisions.
