Government has instructed the Suva City Council to put a stop work order on the commercial development at the Marist Brothers High School ground.

This follows an appeal by  Adrienne Ali of Interalia Law, the residents and business owners in Flagstaff to the Minister of Local Government, Housing and Environment, Parveen Kumar.

The objectors are concerned with the impact on traffic flow if the development goes ahead.

In a letter to the SCC, the director of Town and Country Planning, said all activities on the site must cease until Mr Kumar makes a decision on the appeal.

Additionally, the construction fence or boarding walls placed at the junction of the Carew Street and Bau Street should be removed.

“This evidently is blocking line of sight, triggering traffic hazard for vehicles turning in and out from Carew Street.

“The council is requested to liaise with the Fiji Roads Authority in this regard.”

The letter was copied to FRA, the Superintendent Flagstaff Plaza Project for Fineland Investments Limited, InterAlia Consultancy and Acting Permanent Secretary for Local Government.

Ms Ali said there was a public consultation regarding the development and a lot of residents opposed the idea but it was overruled by the  Town and Country Planning.”

Ms Ali stated the development would cause a lot of traffic problems.

SCC, FRA and the developers could not be reached to comment last night.
