“4. Also note that from the 3rd’ of January 2022, all new developments must apply and receive IGIS Land Use/Planning Permit from our office before the commencement of any building or renovation work. Failure to comply may lead to the sealing of the site and the issuance of a contravention notice.

“5. This permit will guide developers on the designated Land use for the parcel and ensure that setback rules are maintained, space standards adhered to and the building code incorporated into the building and Technical drawings.”

The IGIS management said the directives are pursuant to the Imo State Lands Administration and Imo Geographic Information (Establishment) Law No 3 of 2021.
