This was disclosed by the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Oluyinka Olumide during the presentation of the draft-final report of the review of Alimosho Model City Plan to the management of the Ministry by Messrs Corporate Castles Ltd. on Thursday.

The Commissioner said that the review of the Model City Plan, which commenced in 2022, was a  statutory endeavour to produce a 20-year plan that would match present and future realities.

 

Expressing confidence in the review process, he said that the consultants applied the right planning parameters to plan for the development of the area with proposals bordering on traffic and transportation, industrialisation, water and sanitation and tourism among others.

 

However, he urged for a more critical look at market designs that would accommodate the urban poor as they deserve to exist and make a living. Part of the plan is the proposed action areas, which include Ipaja, Iyana-Ipaja, Igando, Amikanle, and Ikotun, among others.

 

Director, Technical Services, Tpl. Bola Aliu said that the consultants did well to consider the growth potential of Alimosho in making spatial and sectoral considerations in the plan, adding that the review would proceed to the next stage, which is public display, without a hitch.

 

Earlier, the lead consultant, Tpl. Makinde Ogunleye stated that the review of the Alimosho Model City Plan had been painstaking and participatory by involving various stakeholders, including Ministries and Agencies of Government.

 

Whilst presenting the review proposals to the Ministry, Dr. David Olawale of Corporate Castles Ltd noted that the review project started with stakeholders’ involvement in September 2022 and that various implementation strategies were adopted in deference to the peculiarities of the area.
