The initiative was conceived to address the infrastructure gap in the FCT by swapping land with private investors who would in turn offer necessary infrastructure.
The FCT Minister said the FEC granted approval for the resumption following a memo he presented to the council.
According to him, some amendments were made to the original form of the initiative by establishing a legal framework to protect all parties.
