Minister Warns Persons Who Flout Building Regulations


Minister of Local Government and Rural Development Desmond McKenzie, says the Government is prepared to take action where persons continue to build in unsafe zones or without the required approvals from the municipal authorities.

He noted that the State has a duty to act within the ambit of the law to ensure safety in the built environment.

Minister McKenzie said that while the Government will continue to serve notices and encourage persons to move to safer areas, individuals in the affected communities or buildings are obligated to ensure their own safety.
