0 2

Central Province Governor Lalith U Gamage has informed the Janatha Estates Development Board (JEDB) to immediately suspend their plans to distribute 20 plots of land in a highly sensitive environmental zone in Hantana area.

The Governor has also indicated that since this project should be operated in a transparent manner, a formal investigation should be conducted and a report should be given to the District Coordination Committee by the Central Environmental Authority, Urban Development Authority and other institutions before its implementation.

The Governor has pointed out that attention should be paid to the protection of the environment in the Hantana ecosystem, which is a water catchment area as well as a highly sensitive ecological zone.
