|Lagos Seals 67 Buildings For Flouting State Planning Laws by Seedorf2(m): Thu 04, November, 2021|
Lagos State Government has sealed at least 67 commercial and residential buildings, as well as structures in Alimosho Local Government Area of the state over contraventions of planning laws.
Officials of the Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority, LASPPPA, sealed off the structures during a recent enforcement exercise carried out by the authority.
According to the General Manager, LASPPPA, Mr Kehinde Osinaike, the affected buildings were sealed for offences bordering on non-compliance to building regulations and conversion of residential buildings into commercial use without the necessary authorisation.
He explained that the enforcement was carried out simultaneously in the authority’s delineated district areas of Alimosho, Mosan-Okunola and Agbado Oke-Odo in Alimosho Local Government.
Osinaike disclosed that LASPPPA had earlier in September 2021 served contravention notices on the affected structures, adding that the notices were not heeded as required, hence, the necessity for the operations.
According to him, “125 property owners were served contravention notices, through our District Offices, in September.
“Out of this number, 40 responded with appropriate approved building permits. However, 67 failed to respond.
“This was what led to two-day targeted enforcement at the Local Government Areas by our Monitoring and Compliance Unit.
