Lagos Smart City: Planning Permits now available for property owners, developers to view via mobile App

Property owners and developers in Lagos can now have access to viewing Planning Permits issued by the State Government on monthly basis electronically, through a Mobile Application, tagged MPP&UD – NewsDirect has learnt.

The Mobile Application would bring Planning Permit issued by LASPPPA for ease of access to property owners, developers and other stakeholders in the built industry, while also having access to view list of distressed and abandoned buildings in the State.

The regular display of all Planning Permits issued on the Mobile App, NewsDirect observed, will serve as a guide, provide the necessary information and discourage illegal physical developments, while fastracking the achievement of a sustainable Lagos as envisaged by the THEMES Agenda, the policy thrust of the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu led administration.

She stated that The Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development in a press statement dated 21st July, 2022, made available to our correspondent on Thursday, signed by the Deputy Director, Public Affairs in the Ministry, Mukaila Sanusi, affirmed that it will henceforth make available records of Permits issued for public viewing through its Mobile App, the Lagos State MPP&UD App.

The Statement quoted the Permanent Secretary, Lagos State, Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Engr. Abiola Kosegbe while featuring on a magazine programme on LTV, to have said that through this measure, all stakeholders including property owners and developers could view Planning Permits issued on monthly basis, which will include the type of use and number of floors among others.

According to her, Stakeholders would also be able to monitor for compliance, particularly with respect to type of use and number of units, while urging them to notify authorities quickly if the construction was deviating from approval.

She further explained that in the case of Provisional Permits, which were issued temporarily while applicant’s land title was still under processing in Lands Bureau, Stakeholders should note that they were only valid for just nine months.

“As such, the regular display of all Planning Permits issued on our mobile app, will serve as a guide, provide the necessary information and discourage illegal physical developments, while fastracking the achievement of a sustainable Lagos as envisaged by the THEMES Agenda”, the Permanent Secretary said.

She stated that list of Distressed and Abandoned buildings would also be uploaded on the app.

She added that the development was part of the State Government initiative to enhance service delivery and ensure that members of the public continue to receive the dividends of democracy.
