Speaking on the Bill, the chairman of the committee on  Lands, Housing and Survey, Honourable (Dr) peter Oyetunji who represents Surulere/Ogo-Oluwa State Constituency  in the Assembly said the Bill is aimed at addressing the incessant building collapse in the state.

“It is an Executive Bill  seeking that builders get  required building standard before embarking on constructions and building of houses. The Bureau has been performing without law but now it has law backing its workings. It will also address the incessant building collapse in the state.”

According to him,  work on the Bill started a year ago but became law in Oyo 2019 adding that with the law, there would be  standard in the discharge of  the activities of the Bureau.

Presiding over the matter the Speaker of the Assembly, Hon Olagunju Ojo said the state Bureau of Physical Planning  and Development Control  law 2018 that has just been passed into law  was basically to address one of the basic needs of housing  in form of  residential, commercial,  industrial and others.

“The Bill will standardize  all processes involved in building and physical planning for a safe and standard environment. It will provide  for Technical and professional  involvement  in all processes of  physical development.”

While thanking the committee for a job well done, the Speaker enjoined all that are to apply the law to ensure full enforcement, just as he urged the public to adhere to the laid down regulations.
