The Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority (LASPPPA) resumed its enforcement activities for the year 2023 during the week with the sealing of an abandoned filling station near Otedola Jubilee Estate Gate, Omole Phase II, along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Speaking on the exercise, the General Manager of LASPPPA, Tpl. Kehinde Osinaike noted that the building which had been abandoned for a long time was sealed and served relevant notices in order to prevent further construction works on the property.
He urged relevant stakeholders in the built sector to embrace voluntary compliance with the stipulations of Town Planning Laws as its benefits far outweigh enforced compliance.
Osinaike also advised members of the public to contact the Head Office of the Authority at Oba Akinjobi Way, Old Secretariat, GRA Ikeja or any of its District Offices closest to them for further enquiries and necessary clarifications.
He charged intending applicants and other members of the public to desist from inducing the staff of the Authority to compromise in the discharge of their duties.
Similarly, the General Manager of LASPPPA has enjoined all staff of the Authority to be more professional, civil and cordial in dealing with clients visiting their offices for enquiries or other purposes.
