Cabanlas inspects proposed residential lot in Lumbia

COUNCILOR Edgar S. Cabanlas, chair of the City Council committee on subdivision and landed estate, on Thursday led the ocular inspection of a proposed residential project in Barangay Lumbia.

The Gavel learned that the properties are currently designated as tourism zones as reflected in the official zoning map of Ordinance No. 10384-2006.


The inspection was done in response to the request of Bria Homes CDO, developer of the subdivision, for reclassification of the properties from tourism zone to residential zone.

The particular lot, identified as lot no. 21352 and lot no. 21360, covers a total area of more or less 47.4576 hectares.


The request for reclassification was endorsed by the City Planning and Development Office (CPDO) which certified that the property is located within the tourism zone.

The City Tourism Office certified that there are no infrastructure projects indicated in the Tourism Development Plan (TDP) of Barangay Lumbia.


Representatives of the CPDO, City Tourism Office, City Housing and Urban Development Department (CHUDD), and the developer joined the inspection.


Councilor Cabanlas favorably endorsed the request to the committee on laws and rules chaired by Councilor Ian Mark Q. Nacaya for appropriate action. (SP/JBDacer)
