LLG that is both rural and urban

The Kokopo/Vunamami LLG is where Kokopo town is situated.
From Blanche Bay there are glorious views of the Duke of York islands, New Ireland beyond and the St George Channel. It is no wonder Queen Emma and German administration Governor Albert Hahl chose Kokopo ahead of other south-sea ports to be their headquarters in the early 1800s.

The LLG consist of 19 wards and though it is an urban LLG, it is also serving the rural areas within its LLG. Its rural and urban populations are about 12,870 and 4,641 respectively. The LLG had most of its projects completed and are in good condition.
Twenty thousands kina was allocated for ward projects and was distributed between the 19 wards.

The fund was used to maintain and renovate existing infrastructures.

There are however, certain projects like community halls in Palnakaur ward, and Vunamami ward that was delayed due to land dispute, but are now in progress.

Meanwhile, the developments of the Kokopo Market improvement is on hold at the moment due to technical documents regarding the plan of the project was not presented and approved by the physical and Planning Board.

Six community school classrooms and eight classrooms for top-up schools and a library were completed in 1998 and are now in use.
