Buildings without approval to be demolished 'Lagos govt

Published by Tribune on Sun, 25 May 2014

The Lagos State government has said it will soon commence demolition of buildings without approvals across the state.According to the state Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Mr Toyin Ayinde, the state government would not spare any illegal structure in its environment.Ayinde warned prospective building owners, developers and site engineers to ensure they obtain layout approval before commencing any construction work in the state.The commissioner, who lamented increasing rate of buildings without proper planning and approval, added that such buildings often collapse because the developers failed to follow due process before embarking construction work.He added that it was mandatory for owners of any land proposed for development of a structure to apply and obtain layout approval, especially when the land is in excess of one hectare, before the commencement of structures on such land.'We advise developers, corporate organisations, groups and land-owning families to ensure they apply and obtain layout approval for their properties, essentially because it will ease the process of obtaining development permit and increase land value. It will also enable them to approach formal financial institutions to fund their projects.'Layout plans are instruments meant to guide and correct haphazard developments, thereby eradicating the growth of slums and promoting environmental conservation and regeneration. Also, punitive measures such as refusal of building plan approval, site sealing and demolition of any illegal development have also been put in place,' he noted.Ayinde warned that government would not hesitate to seal any properties developed without due process or approval.According to him, the task of achieving the mega city status for Lagos State was a collective responsibility of everyone, adding that it was imperative for everyone to partner with government in bringing sanity to structure development.'They should join hands with the state government in achieving an orderly, safe, aesthetic and sustainable environment in the continuous bid to make Lagos a prosperous mega city that will be a cynosure of all cities in Africa,' he said.
