Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa says that the Cabinet has already approved the setting up of an authority to administer five local councils in theColombodistrict including three municipalities.

Rajapaksa has said the necessary legislation has already been drafted.

The proposed authority is to administer theColombo, Kotte and Dehiwala-Mt Lavina municipal councils, the Kolonnawa Urban Council and the Kotikawatte-Mulleriywa Pradeshiya Sabhaa.

He has explained that the proposed authority would be similar to the Urban Development Authority (UDA) and would help expedite development activities in the metropolis.
