Prior to and after its establishment, the Land Use and Spatial Planning Authority carried out a staff needs assessment and made a case for the grant of financial clearance to recruit staff to fill various staff vacancies.
In response to the request, the Ministry of Finance granted to engage one hundred and eighty-eight (188) staff, i.e. one hundred and thirty-two (132) Spatial Planners, thirty-five (35) Senior Technical Officers and twenty-one (21) Technical Grade II Officers. Qualified successful applicants have been duly recruited and posted to the national and regional offices of the authority after recruitment interviews in 2020.
In order to equip the new recruits with the requisite skills and knowledge about their roles, responsibilities and prospects of working in the public service in general and LUSPA in particular, the Authority organized an induction training for them.
Induction training for newly recruited staff for the Land Use and Spatial Planning Authority (LUSPA) has been duly undertaken for all 16 regions of Ghana which brings the programme to a successful end. The training adopted the regional approach with resource persons from the head office of the Authority moving to the various regional offices to undertake the assignment. This approach helped to reduce the chances of spreading COVID-19 through meeting of smaller groups in their respective regions rather than a mass converging at a single place.
