PLOTS REGISTRATION ON-GOING

The Minister of Lands and Housing who is also the Member of Parliament for Lerala-Maunatlala Constituency informed his constituents during his scheduled kgotla meetings that plots should be registered and the processes is implemented throughout the country.

He noted that the plots can be registered in the nearest land board offices and owners should bring with them certified copies of land certificates and Omang.

“All plots should be registered before the end of 2016 and they will be surveyed for free. In 2017 all plots which are not registered will be required an amount of P8000.00 to be registered and surveyed” he added on.

Moreover, MP Maele said spaces between old residential plots will be filled by allocating them to individuals on the waiting list not by individuals who find them. He said only for ploughing field individuals can be allocated the spaces they found and requested to be allocated by applying.

On the issue of undeveloped plots, he said commercial plots should be developed within a year, residential plots should be developed within 5 years and ploughing fields should be developed within 3 years. He said failure to do so the plots would be taken by land board and be allocated to other individuals on the waiting list.

“To avoid these plots to be taken, individuals who are not ready to develop their plots should give them back to land board. Such individuals will be placed on the priority list and by the time they are ready to develop plots they can be allocated new plots” he noted.

Touching on other issues, the Minister informed constituents of the new PSV requirements on which age limit have been reduced from 25 to 21, no theoretical test, no cone test, no road test and the individual only have to take finger prints and take the PSV if they have no criminal record.

Furthermore, he informed them that they can use driver’s licenses from Southern African Development Communities (SADC) unlike in the past whereby the licenses were supposed to be changed to Botswana driver’s licenses within a year, now individuals can change the license by the time they wish to.
