A planned private residential project on Estrada do Campo in Coloane does not currently have a construction permit, says the Land, Public Works and Transport Bureau. The Government has yet to issue such a permit, as the project’s developer has not so far submitted a final construction plan. Starting construction on any project without a building permit is against the law, stressed the Bureau. As the developer has yet to submit finalised building plans and technical drawings, the criteria for applying for a construction permit have not at present been met. The Bureau emphasised that a building permit would be issued for a project only after such building plans and technical drawings were approved. The Bureau would also solicit opinions from the relevant authorities when considering such an approval process. The standard consideration for approval would be given by the Bureau to the project in the event that a finalised building plan is submitted.
