No report has been received by the Ministry of Local Government, Housing and Environment on the proposed township of the greater Nakasi area.

This was confirmed by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry Joshua Wycliffe yesterday who said no report had been sent by the residents of Nakasi seeking a proposed Nakasi township.

“To the best of my knowledge I haven’t heard anything like that in my office but if that’s true then I can find out and confirm but as of today I haven’t,” Mr Wycliffe said.

A post on the Facebook page of the Nakasi Town by residents claimed: “After several meetings and consultation with residents of the greater nakasi, we have decided that we no longer want to be part of reckless and dumb Nausori Town Council anymore.”

The residents of the new municipality movement said nothing had been achieved with the Nausori Town Council.

The movement listed benefits as: a new maternity hospital, a new vegetable market, a better police station, street lights to all roads, better garbage collection, foot paths to all roads, full time ambulance, full time fire stations, new improved playgrounds, new football / rugby grounds, new parks and rest area and many more.

Meanwhile, Mr Wycliffe confirmed the current renovation at the Suva Market in partnership with UN Women would be completed in a few weeks.

He said the old Nausori Market upgrade would be having its ground breaking ceremony soon with the release of an official statement next week.

Moreover; four new fire stations will be set up soon which was also confirmed by Mr Wycliffe.

He said there is a new board for the National Fire Authority and they were putting in place the new fire stations across the country.

The new locations are Nabouwalu, Rakiraki, Lami, and Nakasi.

The ground-breaking ceremony for the four stations will be held simultaneously and the construction of the new stations will take a year to complete.
