ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has issued show-cause notices to all the five housing societies operating in E-11 over violation of building by-laws.
The action was taken in the aftermath of urban flooding in the sector, which was caused by blockage of a natural stream by a housing society.
“The CDA administration has taken stern notice of illegal constructions and violation of building by-laws in Sector E-11 of the federal capital,” said a press release issued by CDA on Sunday.
It said the civic agency’s management had issued show-cause notices to the owners of private housing societies located in the sector.
“In addition, show-cause notices were issued to 18 residential and commercial buildings in E-11 for illegal constructions and violation of building by-laws,” the press release said.
It said that the CDA’s Sanitation, Machinery Pool and other departments were undertaking cleaning work in the affected sector, adding that the number of garbage bins had been increased in various places in the area.
Also, the CDA administration has directed the Building Control Authority to strictly implement the master plan in Islamabad. It has been emphasised that the construction of residential and commercial buildings should be carried out in accordance with the CDA rules and regulations, 2005.
