The Lagos State Government has warned property owners and developers in Lekki, Ajah and Eti-Osa not to violate the master plan for the area.
The Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr Idris Salako, issued this warning while having stakeholders’ meeting with property owners and developers in the Lekki axis on seamless processing of planning permit.
According to a statement by the Assistant Director, Public Affairs, Mukaila Sanusi, Salako stated that the owners and developers of properties in the area must ensure voluntary compliance to the master plan for that location.
He explained that it was by doing so that the sanctity of the revised Ikoyi/Victoria Island Model City Plan and Lekki Comprehensive Master Plan could be guaranteed, being the operative development plan, covering the area.
“Consequently, you are to please note that the approval orders of the plans, as applicable, remain the only valid references for any developmental activity that can be carried out in this area until another review is conducted,” he said.
He further warned that any act of deliberate contravention of the approval orders, extant law and regulations must stop, saying the ministry would not allow the ugly trend of haphazard and illegal development to continue unabated.
