“Public Domain Bill a big step forward” Front
Front Harsien ODZ welcome parliament’s unanimous approval of the 2nd reading of the Public Domain Bill which was proposed by the Opposition.
“The concept of a public domain is essential so that the collective good and the public interest can be safeguarded against unsustainable development, commercialization and environmental destruction. Front therefore welcomes the bill”.
“In its feedback to the Government on the reform of the Lands Department, Front is proposing that Land in public hands, the coastline and all scheduled areas should be considered part of public domain and regulated by a public domain act which safeguards these lands from commercialization. Government should be refrained by law from passing public ODZ land for private projects involving construction or development”.
Front’s full list of proposals on this matter can be found on the Front website .
