Ministry of Lands Issues Urgent Verification Notice to Aberdeen and Lumley Creek Property Owners

By Amin Kef (Ranger)

The Ministry of Lands, Housing and Country Planning has issued an urgent notice, signed by Abdul R. M. Fofanah, Permanent Secretary on March 1st, 2024, calling for all property owners and claimants of land along Aberdeen/Lumley Beach and Aberdeen Creek to submit their land ownership documents for verification.

In light of increasing natural disaster risks due to encroachment into creeks, the Ministry, in partnership with the Ministry of Environment and the National Protected Area Authority (NPPA), has deemed it essential to authenticate land ownership to prevent potential environmental disasters and disease spread.

The deadline for the submission of these documents is Friday, March 15, 2024, and they must be presented to the Deputy Director of Surveys and Lands at the Ministry. This verification is a critical step in ensuring the legitimacy of land ownership and the legality of constructions in the designated areas.

Property owners and claimants are urged to adhere to the public notice and submit the required documents promptly within the given time frame to avoid any penalties or legal issues.

For further information or assistance regarding the notice, individuals can reach out to the Ministry’s office located at the 3rd Floor of the Youyi Building in Freetown or contact the Public Relations Officer at +232 78980040.
