Assem El-Gazzar, Minister of Housing, Utilities, and Urban Communities, issued four decisions to remove encroachments and building violations on lands owned by the New Urban Communities Authority, Invest-Gate reports.
El-Gazzar emphasized the continued efforts of the ministry’s agencies, in collaboration with other entities, to remove informal settlements and violations in new cities to regulate urban development.
The decisions stipulate the administrative removal of encroachments and building violations on various parcels of land located on the Alexandria-Matrouh coastal road, with different areas and dimensions.
These violations include constructing additional floors (concrete structures) on one of the parcels and encroachments and building violations on another parcel, consisting of a repeated fourth-floor unit adjacent to the violative building (ground floor + four repeated floors).
Furthermore, there are encroachments and building violations on a third parcel, where a ground floor has been constructed. Moreover, there are building violations on a fourth parcel located on the inland side of the Alexandria-Matrouh coastal road, involving the continuation of illegal construction of an upper first-floor unit (concrete structure) without legal authorization.
The decisions state that the North-Western Coast Development Agency, with the assistance of the Urban Planning Police and the specialized police department, will be responsible for implementing the removals.
