As part of efforts towards decentralising its operations, the lands commission says persons who plan on registering their lands in the newly created regions no longer have to go to their former regional capitals to do so.
According to the commission it has established offices in all the newly created regions to help facilitate its service delivery.
Speaking during a management retreat, executive secretary of the lands commission James Ebenezer Dadson, stated that his outfit was making plans to set up district offices to further localize its operations.
“Any region in Ghana that you have acquired land you would only go to the regional capital to register your land so you don’t have to travel, for example from Western north, which used to be part of the Western region, to go all the way to Sekondi to register. The Western Regional office is fully operational. The same way we’ve done for Oti.”
“So instead of moving from Dambai to go to Ho, you can register your land in Dambai to make it convenient for the public. Moving forward, what we are doing is to open district offices so the service will even be much closer to the people.” He added.
Last year the Commission also announced that from October 1, 2021, there will be a one-stop verification system for all land searches conducted at the Commission.
According to the Commission, reports from all of its divisions will be put into one separate report.
The Commission has thus urged the public to use its portal in making search applications.
“Furthermore, from October 1, 2022, all applications for searches should be submitted online through https://onlineservices.lc.gov.gh”.
