In continuation of efforts to stop illegal building construction in the State, the Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development on Wednesday served Contravention Notices on 3 bonded container terminals and sealed 16 other buildings, constructed illegally in Okota axis of Oshodi-Isolo Local Government Area.
The bonded terminals, located on Ago- Palace Way and Muyibat Oyefusi Street, Okota were found to have been inappropriately constructed in areas designated as residential and were requested to come forward with the Planning Permit for the facilities to avoid being sealed.
The Ministry, led by the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako also sealed 16 other residential and commercial buildings constructed without Planning Permit or in variance with the Approval Order of the area.
The sealed buildings ranged from shoping malls, hotels, wharehouses to residential buildings, some of which were illegally converted to other uses.
Salako urged Lagosians to note that it was paramount to build by the rule as doing so is good for the wellbeing of all.
He maintained that Property Owners and Developers had no excuse not to build right, given the persistent public enlightenment and enforcement by the Government.
He reiterated that Property Owners and Developers should shun charlatans and approach the District Office of the Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority(LASPPPA)to process their Planning Permit and follow the rule during construction of building.
