Call for State Government not to victimise land owners
Posted on : 14 Jun 2018

  This is a response to the press reports of 14th June 2018 in the Sarawak Tribune and the Utusan Sarawak titled “Call for State Government not to victimise land owners” and “JTS digesa buat pertimbangan semula” respectively.

  The Land and Survey Department acknowledges that it has received an application for a renewal of land lease in respect of Lot 176 Gading Lundu Land District following which it was processed.

  Ground investigations; however, shows that the land is used as a resort, namely the Ocean Beach Resort.  This clearly breaches the permissible use of the land which is conditioned for agricultural purposes only.

  On this basis, the Department has rejected the application for a renewal of the land lease.  However, the land owner through their consultant was called up and advised to remedy the breach by submitting a proper application for a variation of title condition (AVTC) for consideration of the State Planning Authority (SPA).

  Upon approval of the AVTC, a new title bearing a term of 60 years will then be issued after all formalities have been completed.
