Honiara city council issues demolition notices to illegal houses

Updated 5 February 2014, 8:50 AEST

In Solomon Islands, Honiara City Council says it plans to demolish illegally-built houses throughout the capital, in an effort to clean up the city.

Semi-permanent constructions - often leaf huts - have long been a problem in Honiara and the council is concerned it impacts badly on the image of the city.

The council says most of the illegally built houses are small buildings along the city's roadside, many designed to sell betelnut.

Honiara City Council Clerk Charles Kelly says they've already begun issuing demolition notices.

Presenter: Richard Ewart

Speaker: Charles Kelly, Honiara City Council Clerk
