(CMR) The Public Lands Inspectorate under the Public Lands Commission is reminding the public that there is a correct process to gain permission for the use of public and/or crown lands.
The PLC and its Inspectorate are responsible for protecting and regulating the use of public lands in accordance with the provisions of the Public Lands Act, Public Lands Regulations, and the policies and procedures set out by the Commission and the Inspectorate.
Winsome Prendergast, Chief Inspector of the Public Lands Inspectorate, explains, “All persons requesting use of public land are required to book the desired site to be used, and where applicable, obtain the necessary permit (vendor or non-vendor) to operate from the location. :
“It is important to note that where a permit is not required, the public is still required to book the location requested to avoid conflicts, ensure fairness in the booking process, and to prevent abuses of the system. Failure to book your location will result in the site not being reserved for usage,” Prendergast added.
The Ministry responsible for Lands, Public Lands Commission, and the Public Lands Inspectorate is set to launch a public education campaign in the coming weeks to provide opportunities for the public to engage with the team and learn more about the work and services of the Public Lands Commission and Inspectorate.
