Guadalcanal Province (G-Province) will soon be conducting a survey from White River in West Honiara to Lunga in the East, to determine the customary land from town boundary.
This will be done through the G-Province Task Force chaired by Hon. Member for Tandai Ward John Nano.
Their survey will also include the high water mark in the coastal areas along the Honiara coastline.
The task force chairman said that any development that went beyond the high water mark without approval by G-Province Town and Country Planning Board are bound for demolition.
He said from the higher water mark to the reefs and the coastal waters is under the jurisdictions of Guadalcanal province, therefore any proposed development beyond that point should seek approval from the Town & Country Planning Board of the Province.
Task Force chairman also warned developers to visit the G-Province office in Honiara to sort out any illegal development whether on the coastal areas or outside of the town boundary.
Chairman further stated that the purpose of the survey is to demarcate customary land from the town boundary and identify illegal developments within custom land.
The survey is expected to start in the first week of June next month, adding awareness will be made first probably via the mainstream media before the survey work starts.
