HA NOI (VNS ) — The 10th session of the Ha Noi People's Council concluded yesterday after three working days.
High on the agenda was the issue of "super thin and awkwardly-shaped houses", particularly those on ring road 1 (the Hoang Cau - O Cho Dua portion) in Dong Da district.
Le Van Duc, director of the Ha Noi Department of Construction, said that after land clearance for the construction of the road was complete, there were 58 land parcels that were too small to build houses on. After many meetings, thirty of these cases were resolved.
Nguyen The Thao, chairperson of the Ha Noi People's Committee, responded that the remaining 28 must be basically resolved by the end of the year.
Ha Noi Council Chairperson Ngo Thi Doan Thanh asked the Department of Construction to co-ordinate with other departments and agencies to ensure that no more such houses existed after 2014.
In her closing remarks, Thanh also praised members for coming up with effective measures to help city authorities achieve their 2014 targets.
Thao also said that many achievements had been made during the first half of 2014, particularly in the fields of economics, law and order and the environment.
He promised authorities would do their best to help the city achieve its annual goals, calling on all Ha Noi citizens to join the mission to make the capital rich and beautiful.
Thao pledged to do his utmost to ensure that most of the targets set by the People's Council, particularly economic targets, would be achieved by the year-end.
He urged Ha Noi's offices and agencies to strictly abide by measures adopted by the authorities, particularly those helping enterprises overcome difficulties in production and business. — VNS
