Minister for Local Government, Housing, Environment, Infrastructure and Transport Parveen Kumar Bala said all processes are being followed for the declaration of Nadi as Fiji’s third city by the end of the year.

This was highlighted by Mr Bala at the Local Government Awards Night in Lautoka yesterday.

“Plans are progressing well to declare Nadi’s city stature and I am pleased to inform you that the declaration will be done later this year,” Mr Bala said.

“The local government committee during the forum had provided an update on the declaration.”

Mr Bala said Navua’s township was also on the agenda and its declaration to town status would also be declared this year making it Fiji’s 14th town.

“This includes a new hospital, improved roads and bus stand, markets and other amenities,” Mr Bala said.

“Currently we are going through the process of finalising the scheme plan and all other processes with the town and country planning.”
