PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has lifted ban on construction of high-rise buildings to promote construction sector in the province.
KP Chief Minister’s Special Assistant on Local Government and Information Kamran Bangash said in a statement that the Local Government Department has given permission of high-rise buildings in KP, hence fulfilling another vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief Minister Mehmood Khan.
Kamran Bangash said the chief minister had approved the by-laws of the Peshawar Development Authorityfour months ago. Kamran Bangash said the construction sector was earlier facing difficulties as there was ban on construction of buildings beyond seven storeys. He said now a golden opportunity has been created for developers and construction industry for establishing high-rise buildings on commercial property and promote their business. He said permission to multi-storey buildings will save the agricultural lands and promotion of construction sector will create new job opportunities.
