Adhere to Planning Regulations - Botswana

By Kedirebofe Pelontle

Maun — Minister of Infrastructure and Housing Development, Mr Nonofo Molefhi has encouraged Maun residents to adhere to physical planning regulations.

Addressing a kgotla meeting in Maun on October 19, Mr Molefhi said it was critical to construct structures approved by experts, starting from the foundation of the house to its completion.

Building structures, he said should conform to physical planning regulations for them to be recognised as quality structures.

He observed that housing structures were significant since their value appreciated as compared to other assets which lost value with time.

Mr Molefhi said the ministry was also moving to regulate brick manufacturers to ensure quality of building structures.
