THE Nadi Town Council is inviting public opinion on the proposed Nadi Town Council boundary extension.
Council special administrator Robin Ali said the proposed plan was on display at the council office in Nadi Town for public viewing.
“It’s only just been a few days but we have been getting a lot of attention from the public,” he said.
“People are more than welcome to come and have a look at the proposed plans and give us their feedback.”
He added that residents of communities proposed to come under the boundary were also encouraged to visit the council office.
Last week, Local Government Minister Parveen Kumar made known a list of areas proposed to fall under the council’s jurisdiction.
It included Waimalika to Legalega, Nasoso and Naisosovu Island as well as residents and businesses between Votualevu and Malawai.
The third proposed area has been subdivided into two and these include lots within Wailoaloa, Enamanu, Navakai and part of Cawa.
Also included are all residents and properties between Narewa Village and Denarau Island, as well as the back of Namaka Centre and Nadi Back Rd areas, which also ropes in Andrews Rd.
Lots between Navo and Malolo are also included in the proposal..
According to the Nadi Town Council, residential lots make up 77 per cent or 2064 of the council’s total lots.
Commercial lots make up 322 or 12 per cent while industrial properties make up 6 per cent or 141 properties under the council.
The Nadi urban area covers 780 hectares and has a population of about 20,000.
