The permanent secretary, office of physical planning, Oluwole Sotire, made the announcement in a statement issued by the deputy director, public affairs, Mukaila Sanusi, on Monday in Lagos.

 

According to him, property owners can apply for planning permits without paying the usual penalties during this period.

 

“Property owners/developers of existing (completed) developments without approvals, can obtain their planning permits, otherwise known as Building Plan Approvals, within the stipulated period of May 2 to July 30, 2024, without payment of statutory penalties that usually go with erecting buildings without approval in Lagos State,” he said.

 

To access the amnesty programme, he said that an applicant was expected to submit for assessment his/her title document or proof of ownership, survey plan, as-built architectural drawings, and structural, electrical, and mechanical drawings (where applicable).

 

He said they were to submit them through the district offices of the Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority (LASPPPA) in the 57 local government areas and local council development areas of Lagos state and the electronic planning permit (EPP) office at the LASPPPA headquarters in Ikeja.

 

“Other documents to be submitted for assessment are non-destructive integrity test report (where applicable), letter of structural stability and indemnity (where applicable), land use planning analysis report, evidence of tax compliance, and other supporting documents, where applicable,” Mr Sotire said.

 

He said that the amnesty programme was intended to help property owners regularise their building documents and cushion the effect of current economic hardships on the built environment sector.

 

Mr Sotire said, “The amnesty programme, which is part of measures of the Lagos State Government to cushion the effect of current economic hardships on the built environment sector, also offers additional relief of five per cent discount on payments completed within ten working days during the amnesty period.”
