According to Tran Van Phuong, director of the city's Department of Natural Resources and Environment, one of the most popular violations committed by enterprises after being assigned or hired State land lots is delaying implementing projects.
The city's People’s Committee has retrieved more than 295ha of land from 19 violating projects. Among those, six projects covering 10.03ha have been assigned to new investors.
They include project of Dong A Aquaculture Development Company, located in Ngoc Hai Ward, Do Son District, assigned to Hai Phong Food Company; project of Kinh Thanh Trading Joint Stock Company in Cat Ba Town, Cat Hai District, assigned to Sungroup; and project of Mechanical Manufacturing Joint Stock Company at 150 To Hieu assigned to Phu Dien Company.
Land lots of four other projects in Do Son and Hong Bang districts are being put up for auction for other investors to bid.
The city’s authorities have ordered 45 other projects covering more than 684ha to halt due to hindrances in compensation, land clearance or incapability of investors.
Land violations on lack of projects’ feasibility assessment include insufficient research into demands of investment, market; financial capacity and management experience of investors.
Slow land clearance or incapacity of investors has led to land lots left deserted for long.
Phuong said to avoid further land lot wastefulness, local authorities will conduct inspections on land use and impose strict penalties on violations.
They will review land lots of which investors are not capable of continuing to implement projects and report to the city's People’s Committee for withdrawal. The land lots will be assigned to capable investors. — VNS
