CHENNAI: The Corporation was directed by the Madras High Court to consider a plea to demolish a hotel on Karumariamman Koil Street, Vadapalani.
A division Bench of Justices S K Agnihotri and V Bharathidasan issued the directive while disposing a writ petition from V Pandiarajan of the same street recently. The Bench said it was directing the Corporation to consider and pass orders on the petitioner’s plea dated September 18, 2015 in accordance with law within six weeks after giving an opportunity of hearing to the hotel management. According to the petitioner, the building housing Hotel Metro Park had not obtained the approval and the licence from the authorities.
The stench from the garbage dumped by the hotel was intolerable in the thickly populated residential area. There was no proper parking facility, resulting in traffic knots. He had sent a representation dated September 18 last year to the Corporation. But there was no response. Hence, the present petition.
