Konebada Park declaration to be reviewed

​ The Konebada Park Authority Act is now being reviewed by the Department of Lands and Physical Planning.

Minister for Lands and Physical Planning, Justin Tkatchenko made mention of this when presenting an ILG certificate to customary landowners of the Arere Morea Gunina ILG from Porebada yesterday.

Tkacthenko said the Prime Minister has already given instructions on that and department is currently working on it at the moment.

 He said it is causing problems for the land owners, ILG’s and PNG Port as well; there are water leases and protection and many other issues that have risen through the Konebada Park declaration.

“This has not been properly looked at and we need to review and go over it again. That’s something that we are currently working on.”

He said this is just so that the department can make sure that things move forward without hindrances and problems coming from this.

“A resolution is expected in the next few months ahead,” Tkacthenko adds.
