Approved by the NCD Physical Planning Board at Meeting No. 04/2014, 31stJuly 2014 and gazetted as No. G296 – 30th April 2015.
The Poreporena/Napanapa Local Development Plan encompasses Kaevaga/Poreporena, Huhunama/Tovabada and Napanapa/Daugo Island Local Planning Areas (LPAs) which are identified by the National Capital District Urban Development Plan (NCDUDP) as LPA’s 09, 10 and 11 respectively.
The objective of the LDP is two-fold:
- To provide statutory framework for the land use, physical development and infrastructure services with the view to balance social objectives, economic advancement and environmental sustainability; and
- To be used as a guide for forward planning and budgetary considerations and a key tool in weighing up physical planning priorities.
The basis for a development plan for this area is based on the fact that the LPA lies on the corridor to the PNG LNG site and the area is bound to be impacted by activities from the project site. In addition to that about 80 percent of the LPA is on customary land. Therefore, the plan enables traditional land owners to develop their land in a manner that will return the greatest benefit to them.
