Alarmed at the rate of unapproved and illegal development going on in Ikoyi and Banana Island, LASG has asked property owners in those areas to come forth with the planning permits and evidence of stage certification obtained from LASBCA or have their buildings sealed.
The Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako, gave the directive on Saturday during the continuation of the Special Enforcement Operations led by the officials of the Ministry in Ikoyi and environs.
While maintaining that the government intends to extend the exercise to other parts of the State, Salako declared that the present administration is determined to guard the operative development plans and curb illegal physical developments in Lagos.
“During the enforcement on Saturday alone, 22 buildings were sealed for lack of building permits and conformity issues. Of this total, 16 were sealed on Banana Island while six were sealed at Adeyemi Lawson, Mcpherson and surrounding streets in Ikoyi” he said
