SGGP
Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh has required the HCMC People’s Committee to comprehensively inspect Mieu Noi residential area project, which has completed 90 percent of work volume since 2002 and been stagnant until now.
The Government Office has sent an announcement about the Deputy PM’s requirements to settle a complaint by Urban Investment and Development Consulting Company, who is investor of the project in Binh Thanh district, HCMC.
According to the announcement, the committee should base on inspection results to review the project’s plan, handle investor’s violations during the implementation of the project and completely solve residents’ complaints about land acquisition, compensation and resettlement to stabilize their lives as well as protect their legitimate rights and benefits.
The committee should report results of carrying out the requirements before December 1, 2017.
In 1996, the Prime Minister made a decision to approve 8.1 hectare Mieu Noi residential area project.
On April 28, 1997, the PM made another decision to reclaim over 6.9 hectares of land in Ward 3, Binh Thanh district to hand over to Urban Investment and Development Company, which is Urban Investment and Development Consulting Company now, to build the residential area.
After completing about 90 percent of work volume in 2002, the project has been stagnant until now affecting the legitimate rights and benefits of over 100 households.
