Three prominent business establishments Park Plaza hotel,KP building complex and Olivia complex situated on Freozepur Road submitted their parking plans before the Municipal Corporation through their advocate Harpreet Sandhu on Monday. The basements of these buildings were sealed by the Municipal Corporation on May 10 because they were being used for commercial activities instead of providing parking space.
Park Plaza has earmarked 10,800 square feet area of its basement as parking area. In the year 1992,10,461 square feet area of the basement was shown as parking space which otherwise was being used for commercial purposes. KP building and Olivia complex have converted the whole basement into parking area as per the plan submitted to the corporation which was earlier being used for commercial activities,said the advocate. The owners have requested the authorities to open the seal of their buildings.
The basements were sealed following the High Court order on April 30. On May 29,the High Court had asked the respective building owners to submit their parking plans with the Municipal Corporation,which would decide after four days of submission of plans whether to open the seal or not.
MC officials have already done one inspection each in the newly formed parking areas of the sealed buildings. Advocate Sandhu asked the MC authorities to de-seal the buildings so that the construction work of parking area could be completed soon.
