HA NOI (VNS) — Commercial housing projects and new urban areas in the capital city of Ha Noi will be monitored, with a focus on infrastructure construction, following instructions from the municipal People's Committee.
Accordingly, the municipal departments of construction, planning and architecture, planning and investment, natural resources and environment, and transportation would implement overall checks to clarify the progress of projects and the compliance of investors during construction of social and technical infrastructure.
Reports must be submitted to the municipal People's Committee by the end of this month.
Nearly 900 projects are currently under the city's management in Ha Noi. Last year's checks revealed violations and problems at more than 350 projects, spread over a combined area of 1,400 ha, including land use violations, slow progress and difficulties in site clearance.
The municipal People's Committee said the evaluation of projects before licensing must be tightened, together with selecting qualified investors.
At a meeting on Thursday, the Deputy Chairman of Ha Noi People's Committee, Nguyen Quoc Hung, asked relevant organisations to check the housing supply for resettlement and the use of the first floor for resettlement housing projects before the end of April.
There were 32 housing projects for relocation under construction in the city, with a total of more than 12,000 apartment units. The city plans to complete 11 projects this year in case there is enough capital, which is estimated at VND315.7 billion (US$14.7 million).
Currently, as many as 13 key infrastructure projects in the capital city have been delayed because of trouble in site clearance. One of the causes is a lack of resettlement homes to place dislocated residents. — VNS
