Lahore: The Lahore Development Authority has uploaded the initial draft of Land-use Rules 2019 on its official website, a news source reported. The authority has formed a committee to get formal approval for the new rules.
The LDA governing body recently approved these Building and Zoning Regulations 2019 for the purpose of promoting the construction of high-rise buildings in the city. The last time the LDA approved building and zoning regulations was 10 years ago. The new regulations will make construction of high-rise buildings easier by altering the old bylaws which prohibited such construction on smaller plots, with restrictions imposed on height limit.
The approved Building and Zoning Regulations 2019 are now in effect, where developers are now bound to make their building plans in accordance with the specified rules.
For the land-use rules, the current government is also looking to amend the laws finalised during the tenure of the last government in Punjab. Reportedly, the land-use rules are also being changed to facilitate construction of high-rise buildings in the city.
