Posted by Elvis Offei-Bekoe - 27th July 2022

On 27th July 2022, the Spatial Planning Committee of the Denkyembour District Assembly held a meeting at the District’s Conference Hall for the consideration and approval of development applications that were received within the month. Approval or disapproval of development application which forms part of the mandate of the committee was the main agenda of the meeting.

The District Chief Executive; Honourable Seth Birikorang Ofosu, the Chairman for the committee opened by the meeting by expressing his gratitude to all members for making time to attend the meeting. He then mentioned that the committee is an important committee to the assembly because they oversee the approval of development plans that in turn raise revenue for the assembly. He therefore urged the committee to try as much as possible to meet every month as stipulated by the law.

The District Physical Planner mentioned that no applications were received for the month of July. However, plans were ongoing towards the street naming and property addressing system. He presented some auto photos of Akwatia to the house. He mentioned that though the entire process is cumbersome and very expensive, he would urge management to put in the available resources to see to the end of the process since it was going to fetch the assembly some revenue. He lastly added that some buildings without permit were identified and owners of those buildings have been asked to come and pay for a building permit or risk demolition of their buildings.

The District Chief Executive, in other business, congratulated the works sub-committee for embarking on a task force exercise which generated a lot of revenue. He then urged them to continue with the exercise periodically. He also advised them to give out their work plan to management so that some form of motivation could be given to the members of the taskforce. He then expressed his gratitude to all members for taking time to attend the meeting.
