The CMC started providing construction permits two weeks after an application was made through its online platform, officials said.

“The new facility ensures that residents are not inconvenienced by the application process that was previously in place,” an official said.

“The service ensures that all construction permits, applied for through the municipality’s online portal, are approved for within 14 days,” he said.

“Officials at the municipality said the first several permits were fast-tracked with some receiving approval within 13 days and another within 9 days.

“The service ensures that individuals will only have to visit the municipality premises twice, to hand in documents and proof of identification and to collect the permit once approval is given. The individuals will be alerted through SMS when the application is ready,” the official said.
