LDA (Lahore Development Authority) had conducted a detailed survey of various approved housing societies in the city and issued notices to developers for illegal construction of homes without getting house or building plans approved from the competent authority.
The residential societies whose owners constructed illegal homes include PIA Housing Society, Awasia Housing Society, Air Lines Housing Society, Architect and Engineers Housing Society, Punjab Government Employees Cooperative Housing Society, PCSIR Staff Society Phase-2, Iqbal Avenue Phase-1, NFC Employees Society Phase-1, UET Society, Eden Value Homes, River Edge, Chanar Bagh, Army Welfare Trust Society, Fazaiya Housing Society, Central Park, Elite Town, Bahria Town, Valencia Town, Engineers Town, Khayaban-e-Amin, Tricon Valley, Sukh Chain Garden, Aitchison College Society and Punjab University Employees Cooperative Housing Society.
LDA has also directed developers to get their building designs approved by the authority within a week, failing which a legal action against them will be taken. The authority has also got rid of temporary commercialization policy, so it issued notices to dozens of buildings’ owners for getting their properties commercialized permanently at 48 commercial declared roads. This task must be done before Dec 31st, 2012 otherwise strict action will be taken against property owners.
