Illegal TDA Land Sales

23 Feb 2018

The Tourism Development Area (TDA) is a reserve zone for tourism development purposes. The West Coast TDA comprises of the coastal stretch from Kotu Bridge to Kartong measuring 800 meters inland, from the High Water Mark. It was leased to Central Government in 1969 by the Kombo North District Authority for a period of 51 years and was subsequently extended to 99 years by the State Lands Act of 1991. Currently,  the lease (SR NO. K226/2015) is under the custody of GTBoard as per the GT Board Act 2011 Part IX (46).

It has come to the attention of the Gambia Tourism Board that people are illegally selling landed properties in the Tourism Development Area, notably Brufut Heights,Tanji, Batokunku, Tujereng, Sanyang, Medina Salam, and Kartong. The General Public is hereby advised that this contravenes the above-mentioned Act thus making the acquisition of land in the TDA through such means illegal.

In the same vein, the Board wishes to inform those clearing the  Brufut Heights area and other part of the TDA that their actions are illegal and should stop with immediate effect or face prosecution.  

Thank you for your cooperation.
