The Special Adviser to the Governor on Urban Development, Mrs. Yetunde Onabule, reiterated that planning was essential to developing a smart city.

She advised residents to inform the government of any violations to avert building collapse.

The ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Mrs. Boladele Dapo-Thomas, thanked the people for supporting the Akinwunmi Ambode-led administration, urging them to keep on supporting the government to do more projects.

LASPPPA General Manager Mr. Funmi Osifuye, a town planner, explained that creating functional communities requireds adhering to the “Operative Development Plan” for the areas.

He said the development plan for Amuwo-Odofin LGA and the Oriade LCDA was the Badagry Masterplan covering 2012 -2032.

Osifuye, however, said the government was aware of the various factors affecting the approval of planning permits for developers, such as land title on federal and state acquisitions, illegal conversions, and illegal development.

He said the government had made provisions to encourage compliance with building plan laws through continuous public sensitisation. Besides, he said the process had been made easy for the public.

Osifuye said there was a provision for the electronic submission of applications via the ministry’s website, payment/validation of processing fees, email notifications, status and dashboards for electronic stage-tracking of applications and provisional planning permit.

Osifuye warned that the state’s policy on regularisation for applicants who had illegally converted their buildings to other uses still subsists, adding that there is a moratorium of six months from this month to August, for developers and property owners who had either started construction or built without obtaining the requisite planning permit.

He urged Lagosians to seize the opportunity for voluntary compliance with the rules to avoid penalty.
