The Lagos State Government has called on Property Owners and Developers interested in obtaining Planning Permit to perfect their applications to avoid delays as the process is clear and seamless.

Making this known on Wednesday was the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako during a chat with property correspondents in his office in Alausa.

The Commissioner averred that except for those that would like to cut corners and make mischief, the requirements for Planning Permit were not cumbersome but necessary to regulate the built environment and give room to seamless development of the State.

” Often times, delay does not come from the Government but failure of Developers to perfect their documents or get the necessary sign-off from relevant MDAs, where applicable” he said.

He buttressed that while the power to grant Planning Permit rested solely with the Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority( LASPPPA), the sign-off of other Ministries and Agencies such as Ministry of Transportation and Office of Drainage Service was necessary in some situations as development activities within the State revolve around many agencies.

” For example, LASPPPA will not issue Permit to any development proposed along drainage alignment or road setbacks without clearance from the Office of Drainage Services and Ministry of Transport respectively” he added.

Other MDAs whose clearances may be required before granting Planning Permit are the Lagos State Fire Service, the Police, Lands Bureau, Office of the Surveyor General, Nigerian Railway Corporation, Nigerian Airport Authority, Department of Petroleum Resources, Ministry of Waterfront Infrastructure Development, Lekki Concession Company, New Towns Development Authority and the Lagos State Development and Property Corporation among others.

According to Salako, to further simplify the Planning Permit process, Government had implemented some reforms and set Service Level Agreement of 28days for processing Planning Permit.

He says: “as part of the reforms, we have increased the number of Supervisory Directors and District Officers and devolve Planning Permit Approvals down to the level of district officers”

He stated that efforts at streamlining the process had yielded positive results, among which is the fact that the 28days Service Level Agreement had become more and more feasible with applicants getting Planning Permits within the stipulated time, adding that as at October, 1,726 Permits had been granted for the year.
