Stop con­struc­tion of petrol sta­tion in our es­tate or we will sue – Runda res­i­dents

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Runda res­i­dents have urged City Hall to stop the con­struc­tion of a petrol sta­tion in the es­tate or face le­gal ac­tion.

Res­i­dents’ as­so­ci­a­tion chair­man Daniel Ngo­bia yes­ter­day ac­cused the county of ap­prov­ing the con­struc­tion de­spite as­sur­ances that the de­vel­oper’s ini­tial ap­proval for change of user from res­i­den­tial to petrol ser­vice sta­tion had been can­celled. He said the county also dis­re­garded the res­i­dents’ ob­jec­tions to the pro­ject. “We are dis­mayed to ob­serve that the con­struc­tion works are go­ing on with a site sign board in­di­cat­ing ap­proval by the county gov­ern­ment,” Ngo­bia said.

In a let­ter dated Oc­to­ber 10 and ad­dressed to the county di­rec­tor of plan­ning, Ngo­bia com­plained that the county did not fol­low the law in ap­prov­ing the struc­ture. Res­i­dents say the po­si­tion is not ideal for a sta­tion.
