Commissioner for Urban and Physical Planning, Mrs. Ronke Sokefun has said that continuous support and cooperation of the public is the only panacea to a well planned and serene environment.
Mrs Sokefun who made this known while fielding questions from journalists in her office at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, said continuous support from the public by observing the physical planning laws and obtaining necessary documents before embarking on any developmental projects would help in maintaining the state master plan and reducing incidence of slum in the State.
’’We request the continuous support from the public, they should keep on building right and keep on working with us as this would benefit all and at the same time eradicate slum in our communities,’’ she submitted.
The Commissioner said strict adherence to the State land use zoning plan would be beneficial to the citizens of Ogun State as each zone would maximize their comparative advantage.
‘’If we can stick to land use plan where the land set aside for agricultural purposes would be used for that, the commercial and industrial zone would remain as such and residential areas would be left for that purpose without altering the plan, then the better for us all,’’ Sokefun said.
