The Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development would, by mid-March 2019, roll-out a construction Permit Processing System (PPS), which involves the use of new software for the automation of land title processes, permits and certification.

Mr Samuel Duodo, the Technical Advisor to the Ministry’s Project on the PPS, said the roll-out would start with the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) and its environs, and gradually spread to other assemblies across the country.

The PPS, he said, would help streamline and simplify the license and permit system at the sub-national level under the Business Enabling Environment Programme and further reduce the time and cost for developers to obtain a construction permit.

Mr Duodu was interacting with the media in Accra on Tuesday, after the selected members from the private sector beneficiary User Community failed to show up for the scheduled training on the construction software.

He underscored the importance of the training for members of the User Community, which would afford them a better understanding of the functioning of the software they required to administer the PPS processes in both the Tema Metropolitan Assembly and the AMA.

He, however, said a new date would be scheduled for the training to ensure effective implementation of the System.
