The household survey carried out by the Ministry of Housing and Community Development has captured 148 houses in Sakoca 2 development lease.

The development lease was acquired by the Ministry in November and covers an area of 5.17 hectares.

The data collected during the household survey will be used to identify and register households living within the development lease area at the time the lease was acquired.

This data also assists the Ministry to identify houses on rent, unoccupied structures and incomplete structures and address these to avoid future hindrances to development.

Director for Housing, Ronit Sen confirms the newly acquired Sakoca 2 development lease will now be added to the 46 development leases under the Ministry and will move to the scheme planning stage soon.

He says they will be issuing house numbers to all households who have provided them with their household data.

Sen says they have also recorded a number of houses that are on rent and are vacant, and they believe the owners of these houses are living elsewhere, and these houses will not receive numbers.

He adds they have also received requests from households to register vacant land lots under their names, but they do not allocate any empty lots to any settler.

The Ministry of Housing has thanked the Land Owning Unit Mataqali Nawawavatu and i-Taukei Land Trust Board for partnering with the Ministry in this mutually beneficial development project.

The Ministry has also paid $65,000 as a premium to landowners in the acquisition of this development lease for ten years.
