SMOKING residents at Tulaghi who were earlier told this year to apply for new plots of lands because of a new domestic wharf is being planned to be built there are still waiting for the application plan.
Central Islands Province (CIP) Premier Hon Patrick Vasuni during the beginning of this year had advised Smoking residents to apply for plots of lands further inland from their seaside location as the planned project was said to had started between July and August.
However to this day, Smoking residents are still waiting for the plan as the planned domestic wharf has not even started yet too.
As doubts are starting to be raised by the locals, the Provincial Secretary (PS) of CIP Mr Alan Christian Siale had recently clarified on the projects side that the cause of delay is the technical design to be adjusted and the inclusion of Gender Infrastructures as a component to the project.
