Mr Dan’ayamaka, the approval for the exercise was in line with the ongoing Urban Renewal Programme of the KDSG and the State Government’s gesture for the regularisation of undocumented layouts within the designated urban areas and other parts of Kaduna Metropolis.

He called on the owners of unapproved structures and those intending to develop within the recent approved regularised areas to go along with their relevant documents to commence building permission process.

The KASUPDA embarked on a Regularisation Programme for undocumented and unplanned layouts.

The agency said this in concert with the Kaduna Geographical Information Service, KADGIS, in the Regularisation Programme, which is aimed at upgrading existing settlements to a certain standard.

The  programme will help in urban planning, population management, help existing structures to acquire their Certificate of Occupancy and will also assist in providing information that will help in managing security challenges.
