LOCAL settlers within Tulaghi’s former fishing companies’ area are advised by Central Province Premier to apply for leftover plots of land from the area they are relocating Smoking residents at.
Premier Hon Patrick Vasuni gives this advice when there is still time to relocate before any new company operates soon in the former fishing companies based area.
Smoking residents, one of the fishing companies sector having settlers after since Solomon Taiyo and the National Fisheries Development (NFD) were operating in CIP are confirmed to move into a new plot of land allocated because work for a new domestic wharf is soon to commence there within July-August this year.
Currently, the whole of the fishing companies’ area is being occupied by settling islanders and indigenous people of the province as well.
“The plot of land that is allocated for relocation just uphill of Smoking area is huge and there are only less than 20 families that we will be allocating into 15 to 20 metres land each,” encourages the Premier.
