Cabanlas inspects proposed housing project in Lumbia


COUNCILOR Edgar S. Cabanlas, chair of the City Council committee on subdivision and landed estate, together with the representatives of the City Engineering Office, City Housing and Urban Development Department (CHUDD) and the developer, yesterday conducted an ocular inspection at the proposed housing project in Barangay Lumbia.

Liberty Land Corporation, developer of the subdivision, is applying for Development Permit (DP) of Northville Subdivision, which has an area of 11,604 square meters and 126 lots or units under the economic housing project.

Concerned agencies of the city government recommended that mitigating measures shall be implemented to prevent, reduce or control environmental effects of earthworks during land development.

During the inspection, a representative of the developer expressed her concern over the development of the adjacent property. She said the developer did not provide a detention pond first prior to the development of a subdivision, which damaged the fence and slope protection that affected residences nearby.

Councilor Cabanlas asked for the suspension of further development of adjacent property. He said the committee will review the application and further discuss it during its next meeting.
