HCM CITY — The HCM City People’s Committee has launched a pilot programme to build temporary structures on agricultural land in Củ Chi, Cần Giờ and Nhà Bè districts.

The structures, which are for agricultural production only, include huts, farmhouses, canals, poultry houses, and houses for growing plants. 

Huts and farmhouses must be made of eco-friendly materials that can be easily dismantled, like bamboo, wood and leaves, and have an area of no more than 15sq.m.

The other structures can have a maximum area of 1,000sq.m and maximum height of six metres, with only one floor.

If owners want to change the function, they must inform the district’s people’s committees via documents. Owners can use only five per cent of the agricultural land to build the works.

The city People’s Committee also asked three districts’ People’s Committees to manage and check the implementation of the programme and regularly send reports to the city.

The districts should send a list of structures to the city’s Department of Construction each month to issue certificates of construction or to stop illegal works.

The programme will be implemented over a three-year period. VNS
