Illegal constructions demolished

LAHORE: Lahore Development Authority during a special drive against land grabbers in various areas of city on Tuesday retrieved precious land worth tens of millions of rupees after demolishing a number of unlawful structures.

According to LDA officials, the Estate Management Directorate retrieved a plot measuring 19 kanlas in C Block of Johar Town from illegal occupants.

The plot had been earmarked as a public utility site for setting up a building for the benefit of the general public. The land grabbers had set up more than 40 concrete structures at the place which were razed during the operation.

Meanwhile, Town Planning Wing sealed a pizza shop on Main Boulevard Ghulshan-e-Ravi as the management of the shop had made addition to the existing premises without getting approval from LDA.

In another incident, LDA staff demolished a workshop as well as two shops in Revenue Employees Housing Society, Johar Town, as the structures had been illegally constructed by grabbing a plot.

LDA staff also demolished an illegal construction which had been established in the parking area of LDA Flats, Lawrence Road. (APP)Source: http://www.thenews.com.pk/CitySubIndex.aspx?ID=14
