In Lahore, the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) took decisive action on Friday by sealing two prominent establishments, Rosa Blanca Country Club and Icon Valley, situated on Raiwind Road. The cause behind this enforcement measure was the failure of both entities to remit the required commercialisation fees.
Rosa Blanca Country Club, spanning an expansive 196 kanals, faced closure due to non-payment of outstanding dues amounting to Rs1.41 billion. The LDA had previously issued multiple notices to the management of Rosa Blanca, urging prompt settlement of the dues. Approximately two weeks before the seal, the LDA Town Planning Department-5 had issued a final notice to the private club, emphasizing the immediate need for settling outstanding dues. The notice explicitly conveyed that, in the event of non-compliance, the LDA reserved the right to halt the commercial use of the club and initiate legal proceedings against defaulters.
It is noteworthy that individuals who had made bookings at Rosa Blanca Country Club will bear responsibility for any resultant losses due to the closure.
Simultaneously, the LDA sealed the office of Icon Valley for failing to remit outstanding dues amounting to Rs20 million. The closure of both establishments reflects the LDA’s commitment to enforcing financial regulations and ensuring that entities adhere to their financial obligations. This proactive approach aims to maintain financial integrity within the city while fostering compliance with regulatory requirements.
