Lagos State Government will subject the Draft Report on the Review of Badagry Master Plan(2022-2024) to public scrutiny from Wednesday 19th June to Friday 26th July 2024.

He said that the 28-day public inspection of the Draft Plan across various centres, mainly within the Badagry division of Lagos State, would allow stakeholders to review its proposals and make relevant comments to further enrich the Plan.

The Permanent Secretary stated that subjecting the draft report to public scrutiny was part of the acclaimed process of preparing an inclusive Plan, which is also in tandem with the State’s culture of Citizen’s participation in the preparation of Physical Development Plans.
