LDA breaks all records, approves housing society in one day

The Lahore Development Authority (LDA), the apex civic body to execute development work in the Lahore division, approved a housing society named Smart City Lahore —with a speed of light — in just one day, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday.

It is believed to be the fastest approval of a housing scheme in the history of LDA at the time when the approval for 165 housing schemes is still pending.

The LDA literally bulldozed 165 other housing schemes and gave Smart City Housing Lahore technical approval overnight.

As per the Lahore Development Act 1975, there are multiple steps from preliminary planning permission, evaluation criteria, processing, submission of housing scheme, layout plan of the scheme, planning standards for the scheme, scrutiny of land ownership documents and after fulfillment of the requirement, the LDA shall issue a formal letter of sanction in Form E and, on receipt of the letter, the sponsor may start the marketing and sale of plots in the sanctioned housing scheme.
