The Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development last Thursday held a stakeholders’ workshop on Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Regulations and Building Control Regulations.
The workshop was put together to enlighten stakeholders on the law and the constitution of a Physical Planning and Building Control Appeals Committee by the State Government. It would be recalled that the Lagos State House of Assembly recently passed the Physical Planning Permit and Building Control Regulations even as Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu approved the Physical Planning and Building Control Appeals Committee.
During the workshop, Dr. Idris Salako who is the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development (MPP&UD) emphasized that the workshop was needed for the successful delivery of town planning services in Lagos State which is in line with the Agenda of the state’s administration. He further added that the engagement shows the state government’s disposition to continuous engagement and consultation to provide innovative solutions to better the lives of Lagosians.
He disclosed that the new Regulations reflect the state’s current realities in curbing illegal developments while reiterating that Ignorance of the law would no longer be entertained.
Salako declared a zero-tolerance to illegal developments all over the state and noted that fragrant disobedience of enforcement activities would be dealt with according to the extant laws including the 2019 regulations.
He clarified that the regulations were not intended to witch hunt anyone but to clampdown on the rising issues of building collapse and restore sanity to the built sector in Lagos State.
Other notable stakeholders commended the state government and expressed optimism that the constitution of the committee would go a long way in reducing the bureaucracies associated with getting building and physical planning permits.
Participants for the workshop were drawn from the Lagos State Chapters of the Nigerian Institute of Town Planners (NITP), Nigerian Institute of Architect (NIA), Nigerian Institute of Estate Surveyor and Valuers (NIESV) amongst others.
