Settlement deadline for illegal construction extended until the end of October

People are being given another month to settle with the gov’t for illegal construction: The government has pushed the deadline to apply for settlements for building code violations until 31 October, instead of the end of this month, Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly said on Thursday. Until now, the government has remained steadfast that the deadline would not be pushed further into the future, but according to the prime minister will do so now to allow more people to settle. This comes a month after the government began taking a hard line towards wildcat building, giving people responsible for constructing illegal buildings a month to settle with the government or face demolition.

WATCH THIS SPACE- Legal buildings across the country will get unique IDs by the end of 2021 to regulate the buying and selling of illegal property, Madbouly said without offering further details.
