The Supreme Court on Tuesday withdrew its earlier order banning construction of high-rise and multi-story building in specific residential and commercial localities of the metropolis, it was learnt.
The decision came in a petition seeking review of the apex court’s May 2017 order banning high-rise constructions beyond six floors in the port city. The apex court also stated that the Sindh Building Control Authority (SCBA) can construct high-rise buildings as per the law.
In May last year, the SC had restrained the SBCA and cantonment boards from issuing building approval plans for new high-rise and multi-story commercial and residential projects without the availability of proper water supply and sewerage systems.
Speaking to the media outside the SC Karachi Registry following the order, the ABD delegation said, “The court has withdrawn the ban that was placed two years ago. Now, buildings will be constructed as per the law.”
“Over 500 projects and investment worth Rs1,000 billion had been stopped owing to the ban,” they added.
