The Urban Development Authority (UDA) has proposed to construct a Rest House consisting of 38 rooms with all other facilities in Jaffna to facilitate the accommodation requirements of those visiting the northern town.
The move was approved by Cabinet last week on a proposal made by President Mahinda Rajapaksa, in his capacity as the Minister of Defence and Urban Development.
Cabinet approved the vesting of the required block of land with the UDA to implement the construction of the Rest House.
The Government said Jaffna is one of the important regions identified for post conflict development under the ten year development framework.
