Kumar: Qauia Subdivision Still On
Subdivision work

The subdivision work at Qauia, Lami, will carry on as planned, says Minister for Local Government, Urban Development, Housing and Environment Parveen Kumar.

He said this after he heard that there was some disagreement between the landowners, but the development plan was already with the Director of Housing and work would continue.

The chairman of the Prime Minister’s Resettlement Taskforce, Kisoko Cagituevei, had told the Fiji Sun earlier that there was a group opposing the subdivision, but this would not stop the work.

He said the land on which Qauia Settlement stood was outside the landowner’s reserve.

“We do not need the consent of the landowners to subdivide the Qauia Settlement,” he said.

Mr Cagituevei said the Ministry of the iTaukei Affairs was in control of that land.

Mr Cagituevei had already met with the landowners at Lami Village and explained to them that their consent would not be needed for the land at Qauia to be subdivided because it was outside their reserve.

The tenants, he said, would pay lease rentals to the mataqali through the iTaukei Land Trust Board.

Mr Cagituevei said the landowners wanted a piece of land for their business and this was included in the Qauia Plan.

Currently, the people of Qauia were not paying anything to the landowners, but helping them in their traditional and social obligations.

Mr Cagituevei said all land outside the reserve of landowners in the Suva-Nausori corridor would be subdivided for housing lots.
