At the meeting, a representative of the city’s Department of Construction said his department has consulted the People’s Committee on policies of housing development projects. Accordingly, these policies should be consistent with the city’s housing program in the 2016 – 2025 period and plan of housing development in the 2016 - 2020 period which had been approved by the People’s Committee.
In addition, these policies must be in accord with housing development step in priority and restriction of each area.
The regulation that says housing project included in the list of projects attached with the city’s plan will be approved is not suitable with the present situation. It will be an obstacle for developers in deploying their housing projects as well as finishing construction legal procedures.
Regarding new projects that have not been added in the list, the department will guide developers to complete paper work as per the current law of construction investment.
Mr Tuyen also asked district-level authorities to review the legality of the housing projects in the jurisdiction and update its list of housing projects for supervision and analysis of the housing development in each area, contributing to the city’s housing development plan in the 2021-2025 period.
In relation to other projects which are set to be completed between 2016 and 2020 because of lack of paper works, the department will continue reviewing and liaise with district administrations to re-consider them. These projects will be added into the list of housing project houses during 2016-2020 period if they can be complete before next year.
At the end of the meeting, Mr Tuyen concluded housing projects must go along nicely with the city’s plan. Additionally, local authorities must consider various factors including capability of developers, infrastructure and population density in each area before approving the projects.
