Yangon Lifts Building Suspension

Yangon Region has permitted contractors to construct buildings with more than three floors after a five-month suspension, according to Yangon City Development Committee’s building department.

In July the order was issued to prevent larger buildings before a new construction policy came into effect. The order had been lifted although the new policy was yet to emerge, said a YCDC official. 

“Our suspension came because we were concerned about complications between the old and new policies. It took about five months. But we will allow them again because the policy drafting is still underway,” said the official. 

He said the YCDC had now received proposals for about 40 buildings. Prior to the latest suspensionthe construction of nearly 200 buildings with more than 12 floors, which was allowed by the previous government, was stopped by the new government after a review on May 14.

Among those 200 buildings, the construction of 12 buildings was allowed in August and 45 others this month

In the past few years, Yangon granted permits for about 500 buildings per monthThis fiscal year, 239 buildings were allowed in July, 386 in August, 232 in September and 278 in October.
