LAND lease issues are at the fore of discussions facilitated by Local Government and Housing Minister Premila Kumar in the Western Division today.

She informed residents of Lovu in Lautoka this morning that the process of acquiring iTaukei Land Trust Board (TLTB) had begun as the ministry had received a land development lease in 2017.

She said this involved a huge cost for the Government and asked for the understanding and patience of the community when development works progressed in the area.

Mrs Kumar will be visiting settlements in Lautoka, Nadi, and Sigatoka later today.
