One of the frequent challenges businesses face is obtaining construction permits in a smooth and timely manner.
First, a Joint Memorandum Circular between DTI, DPWH, DILG,DICT, and NCC was released late last year to all Local Government Units advising them of reforms to simplify the issuance of construction permits. That joint memorandum circular is attached for your reference.
Additionally, in partnership with Quezon City, new processes for the filing and issuance of construction permits was designed under a new Construction Permits One-Stop Shop at Quezon City Hall (14th floor). The National Competitiveness Council is hopeful that other cities will follow suit. This one-stop shop was patterned after the Construction Permit One-Stop Shop at Valenzuela City. An infographic on this new process is also attached for your reference.
