by PIO release

The City Buildings and Architecture Office (CBAO) was able to initially visit 8,943 structures in the city as part of its mandate to monitor and inspect the buildings that were constructed on whether or not the same are compliance to the National Building Code and other local laws, rules, and regulations.

CBAO Head Nazita Bañez said that the structures were put up in 41 barangays.

Of the number of structures, the enumerators who were dispatched by the CBAO found that there were only some 1,306 structures with building permits while there are only 45 structures with duly issued certificates of occupancy.

It was also found that there were only 44 structures with fencing permits while there are only 78 structures with other permits that were issued by the CBAO.

Bañez that there were only 1,448 structures, which were able to establish appropriate parking spaces while there were 43 structures that converted their parking spaces to other purposes.

According to the CBAO report, the enumerators were also able to visit some 85 proposed cultural and historical sites in the different parts of the city during the initial period of inspection.

On the other hand, the CBAO noted that there are 3,012 structures within the 23 barangays of the central business district area where 490 structures have parking spaces that represent 16.27 percent of the total number of structures within the CBDA area.

Bañez said there were 29 structures in the CBD with converted parking spaces or 0.96 percent of the total number of visited structures.

There were only 815 structures, which were to be with permits that represent 27.06 percent of the total number of structures.

The CBAO head said that there were 64 structures that have been built in protected areas as defined under the city’s Environment Code, 59 structures were said to have violations on creek easements and there are reportedly five structures situated in watershed areas.

Bañez said the results of their inspection of structures are partial and still needs verification.

The results of the monitoring and inspection of structures in the city will be made available by the CBAO to the public by the end of the year to ensure that the data to be released to stakeholders are the actual number of structures.

The CBAO called on building owners to cooperate with the enumerators so that the local government will be able to come out with the accurate data on the real number of structures for policy making and decision-making.
