Works and Engineering Minister looking to resolve land dispute

I offer my deepest condolences to the Gibbons family for their loss. We recognise their frustration and understand their disappointment that a resolution could not be reached before Mr Gibbons’ passing.

I want to emphasise that the Government has been actively engaged with the Gibbons family for well over a year, working to find a fair resolution. Our efforts have involved the participation of lawyers from both parties to explore various options.  We are currently awaiting a response from the Gibbons lawyer to the most recent proposal dated June 7th, 2023.

It is important to note that the Government has presented numerous proposals, each aimed at reaching a satisfactory outcome. Regrettably, these offers have been declined on multiple occasions. Nevertheless, we remain committed to finding a resolution that addresses the concerns of the Gibbons family. We understand the urgency and the need for closure, and we are confident that a mutually agreeable solution can be reached in the very near future.
