Town & Country Planning goes online

“It’s the first of its kind in the Pacific”

The department of Town and Country Planning launched its website late last month. Launched by the minister for Local Government, Urban Development, Housing & Environment.

The website which was developed by Information Technology & Computing Services (ITCS) will improve communication and information delivery between government departments, stakeholders and its customers said Mr. Saumatua. He added that the website is a good knowledge tool for everyone because it showcases what the department does, the projects being implemented and information that will be of use to the general public.

The website is designed that it is user friendly, so that users easily access the information provided by the department and users are also able to contact those in some sections of the department.

An additional 5 revamped government websites are planned to be commissioned in early April, with another 7 sites to be re-developed by July 2010.
