Cabinet endorsed the continuation of survey of government institutions on iTaukei land leased to the State, for the next 10 years by the Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources.

In a statement, Cabinet stated that the project commenced in 2009 for 723 government stations with a total coverage of 19,954.98 ha.

“These 723 government stations are on iTaukei leases, which the Director of Lands has now acquired and/or now leased on behalf of the State,” Cabinet said.

The main objectives of the project were to demarcate and survey correct lease boundary of State leases on iTaukei land for acquisition of registered leases, determination of correct ground rentals and prioritisation of survey plans approved to ensure lease registration to protect Governments interest over the leased areas.

“Various government installations including health centres, schools and agricultural stations amongst others, are hosted on these iTaukei land leases.

“The ministry will now focus on surveying government leases rather than leases under government statutory entities.

“The rights of both the State and landowners will continue to be protected during the implementation of this project.”

The project is currently in its 12th year of implementation.
