A verification will be done to ascertain whether the area applied for is available to be granted. If it is, the relevant stock sheet will be updated with the applicant’s information and a notice of intention to grant will be published in the Official Gazette. If no objection to the notice has been raised, the applicant will be notified to pay ‘difference in rental’. A permit will be issued once payment has been made. However if the area is not available to be granted, the applicant will be notified and advised to claim his deposit. Application fees are not refundable.
