The Lagos State government has revealed that it would soon conduct compliance audit of Osborne Estate Ikoyi, in order to determine the compliance level of property developers to the Lagos State Physical Planning laws. 

This is part of the ongoing effort by the Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development to enforce strict compliance with the state’s physical planning laws and regulations thereby reducing the incidents of illegal developments and unapproved buildings. 

This disclosure was made by the Lagos State Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako, in a tweet post from the official twitter handle of the Lagos State Government on Friday, July 24, 2020. 

Salako who revealed this during his official visit to that estate with the enforcement team, stated that the compliance audit became imperative due to the general disregard of building codes within the Estate. 

The tweet post states, ‘’The Honourable Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako has revealed that the Ministry would soon conduct a compliance audit of Osborne Estate to determine the level of compliance of Property Developers to the Lagos State Physical Planning Laws.’’ 

‘’Salako, who disclosed this during his official visit to the axis with the enforcement team, stated that the compliance audit became imperative in view of the observed general disregard for building codes within the Estate.’’ 

In continuation of its enforcement of the state’s physical planning laws and regulations, the commissioner directed the sealing of building construction sites for the flagrant disregard of the extant laws and regulations governing physical development in the state including those without planning permit and stage certification. 

This directive resulted in the immediate sealing of 10 buildings in Osborne Estate, while another 6 were sealed on Second Avenue Estate within the same environs. 

Nairametrics had reported yesterday, that the Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development as part of its enforcement of physical planning laws, sealed 43 structures on Airport Road for violating the Physical Planning law of the State.  

Salako explained that the affected properties include 13 banks and 13 hotels were built without planning permit or built without conforming to their approval order.
