Group decries illegal property devt in Lekki
REAL estate investors in Lekki, Lagos State have decried the distortion of the master plan of the area.
They noted that over the last few years, there had been encroachment and conversion of spaces.
According to them, the violation of approved layouts and master plans has not been challenged by successive governments in the state.
An architect, Dr Tony Alabi, told reporters that there had been disregard for the masterplan of the area.
He said: “Developers of high-end properties on government layouts operate with one set of building regulation rules under a discretional best-of-judgment aura and a myriad of privileges.
“The developers of low-end properties in other areas of Lagos operate under another set of building regulation rules and best-of-judgement aura.”
A real estate investor, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the Lekki Northern Business District parking facility meant for the general parking of over 20 business land investors in the Lekki masterplan, had been sold.
According to him, there is no common parking facility in the area, which he described as a built-up community of block of flats.
He said the investors who erected their buildings as planned in accordance with the master plan around the common parking space had nowhere to park their cars.
