8 September 2020

The Sovereign Base Areas Administration (SBAA) regularly engages with its local communities through the Administrator and his officials, supported by the High Commission in Nicosia where appropriate. This regular engagement includes discussion on future development, on which the views of the local communities are sought. Most notably, the SBAA continues to engage extensively with representatives and members of the communities on non-military development, with a full public consultation taking place earlier this year.
