The Ndola City Council has approved the subdivision and resettlement plan of the NCC- Henan Gouji land with 60 hectares to be retained for the NCC- Henan Gouji projects who are the title holders.
Ndola City Council Public Relations Manager Tilyenji Mwanza says 77 Hectares will be re-planned and allocated as alternative plots to those who encroached on the said stand number LN-8841/623.
Ms Mwanza says the subdivision has resulted in the creation of 468 plots, an action taken to mitigate to address the challenge were residents who had made payments to the council and were not given plots as observed in the Auditor General’s report (2014-2016).
She adds that the Ndola City Council will be responsible for the implementation of the resettlement plan which will include but not limited to surveying, numbering of plots, beaconing and opening of access roads whilst members of the public eligible for the plot from the resettlement plan shall be made to pay Processing fee, Penalty fee, Numbering fee and Building Plan Scrutiny Fee.
The Ndola City Council in April, 2019 entered a consent judgement between NCC- Henan Gouji and Mwamba Kaula and others, which judgement paved way for the subdividing of stand number LN-8841/623 into two portions.
