Lagos creates new agency for parks, gardens

Post  Admin on Wed Sep 12, 2012 4:33 pm

Lagos State Government has set up Parks and Gardens Agency, LASPARK, to foster sustainable environment and further enhance the aesthetics of the state.

This makes it now mandatory for tenement/owners and occupiers to landscape and beautify the perimeter areas of their properties.

Violation of this provision shall warrant the penalty of N250, 000:00 or such sums as the state shall incur in doing same on behalf of the tenement, or six months imprisonment or other non-custodian sentence.

The agency is saddled with the responsibilities of managing all designated parks and gardens in the state, in its effort to create a sustaining structure for the landmark beautification and landscaping projects across the state.

The Commissioner for the Environment, Mr. Tunji Bello, disclosed this during the public presentation of the agency in Alausa, Ikeja and explained that the agency was the outcome of a bill initiated by Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State and eventually approved and passed as the Lagos State Parks and Gardens Law No 13, of 2011, by the Lagos State House of Assembly.
