Lagos to introduce e-building plans

LAGOS State is set to introduce electronic building (e-building) plans in the state.

The Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Mr. Olutoyin Ayinde, made this known at a seminar by the International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI), Nigeria Chapter, in Lagos.

Ayinde said the procedure for obtaining approval for building plans is cumbersome, time-consuming and have not made an impact on mass housing development. Hence, the e-planning permit became necessary.

He noted the complaints and challenges in the present system. “Apart from other strategies, we have been able to put in place for proper administration of the building plan approval, we are making frantic effort at ensuring that we bring the e-building plan approval policy into the system,” he added.

The commissioner, while advising developers to obtain permit before constructing, said this would ensure that the structure to be put on such land was developed to avoid waste of resources.

The ministry, he said, introduced pre-submission approval scheme to ensure that construction conforms to what the trend in the industry.
He added that a committee had been set up to work on the reduction of building plan approval fee, adding that development permit was getting better.

At the seminar, which had as theme: “Challenges of planning approval and its effects on housing development in Nigeria,” Chief Kola Akomolede, president, FIABCI Nigeria Chapter, praised the seminar, noting that the first step in housing development is the possession of approved building plan. He regretted that the process of acquiring it had not been easy.

Akomolede recalled that during the tenure of former governor Lateef Jakande, the same problem was identified as one reason there was shortage of housing in the state.

This is not the first time the e-planning approval would be considered in the state. To ensure that it succeeds, consultants are said to have been invited to assist, he added.
