The General Manager, Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority, Funmi Osifuye, has said that improved compliance with physical planning regulations will help reduce and possibly halt the spate of collapsed building and distressed structures in Lagos with attendant protection of lives and properties.

He also called on heads of departments, supervising directors and district officers of the agency to work in harmony with themselves and other agencies within the Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development for sustainable development in the physical planning sector.

A statement by the Director Public Affairs, LASPPPA, Emdin-Umeh Abimbola, titled ‘LASPPPA tasks staff on harmony for effective service delivery’, said on Friday.

It stated that Osifuye who made the call recently at a review meeting with the agency’s management team, tasked them to internalise and put into action the resolutions reached at the recently concluded retreat.

While noting that the need to focus on the new developmental realities of Lagos State was key to the agency’s operation, the general manager stated that LASPPPA would ensure a well-planned and resilient Lagos city state through the implementation of the state physical planning laws.

“We should own and act on the recommendations of the communique and bring it to bear in the performance of our daily activities,” he said.

The general manager disclosed that LASPPPA now had an expanded feedback mechanism and grievance redress channel that could be explored by members of the public in registering their dissatisfaction with process of obtaining a planning permit or a breach of physical planning laws.

“The expanded feedback mechanism and grievance redress channel will assist us in effectively monitoring operations at our district town planning offices,” Osifuye stated.
