The Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development has sealed 43 structures on Airport Road, including 13 banks and 13 hotels for violating the Physical Planning Law of the State.

Speaking during the sealing of the erring facilities on Wednesday, the Honourable Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako stated that the buildings, most of which are in use, were either built without planning permission or built without conforming to their approval order.

He emphasised that the area, being an international gateway to Lagos State, must not be defaced with illegal developments, stressing that all physical developments on Airport Road and other areas of the State must conform to the planning laws of the government.

“It is by enforcing strict compliance with laws and regulations that we can halt the pervasive incidence of illegal and unapproved buildings, protect the Operative Development Plans of Lagos State and sustain an orderly, organised and livable environment”, he said.

Salako, therefore, urged those buying or renting property to ensure that the planning permits and Certificate of Fitness for habitation are in order to avoid their property being sealed.

Other top officials present during the enforcement operations were the Special Adviser to the Governor on Urban Development, Mr. Ganiyu Adele Ayuba; the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Arc. Foluso Adebayo Dipe and operatives of the Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority (LASPPPA), Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) and Special Operations Team of the Governor’s Office.
