Automated construction permit system to begin this month

Must Read

The Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development has indicated that it will launch a construction Permit Processing System (PPS) by mid – March 2019. The program involves the use of a new software for the automation of land title processes, permits and certification.

Technical Advisor to the Ministry’s Project on the PPS, Samuel Duodo, has said the roll – out would start with the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) and its environs, and gradually spread to other assemblies across the country.
According to him, the PPS, would help streamline and simplify the license and permit system at the sub-national level under the Business Enabling Environment Program and further reduce the time and cost for developers to obtain a construction permit.
Speaking to the media earlier in the week, Samuel Duodu mentioned that, after the selected members from the private sector beneficiary User Community failed to show up for the scheduled training on the construction software.
Emphasising the essence of the training for members of the User Community, he stated that, it will afford them a better understanding of the functioning of the software they required to administer the PPS processes in both the Tema Metropolitan Assembly and the AMA.
He, however, said a new date would be scheduled for the training to ensure effective implementation of the System.
On his part, Nana Kofi Anane Adjei, a Consultant of the PPS, said the automated system would replace the manual one, which was very slow, cumbersome, time consuming and frustrating to both personnel of the assemblies and their clients.
Previously, all those processes were done manually and took developers more than two years to secure their construction permits but with the new system, all things being equal, it would take only 30 days
He then stressed that, the PPS would ensure fast communication between the assemblies and developers by opening the stage for online submission of documents, making payments, checking of one’s status, making of requests for scheduled appointment with assemblies for inspection of premises, as well as the issuance of permits.
