CHITRAL: The district administration of Lower Chitral has imposed Section 144 on construction of any building/plaza without approval of its building plan from the tehsil municipal administration (TMA) concerned.
The ban has come into force and will remain effective for two months.
In a notification, Deputy Commissioner Anwarul Haq said the decision to impose the ban had been taken in the wake of rampant construction activities without approval of building plans.
The notification said the unauthorized construction activities were creating nuisance for the general public and tourists due to unavailability of parking spaces, sewerage and drainage system.
He said the participants of the monthly revenue meeting were of the opinion that the mandatory approval of building plans would have positive results. The concerned authorities would ensure the implementation of the ban.
