Iran's capital city Tehran has reached a point of saturation in terms of construction of new houses due to a highly faulty pattern pursued in the past few years, the deputy for planning, urban development and city council affairs at Tehran Municipality said.
"If the Tehran Municipality is to remain committed to its comprehensive plan for accepting new population and if it is to adhere to approvals of the High Council of Urban Development, no new construction permits should be issued for the next five years, save for permits for renovations in distressed urban areas," Hojatollah Mirzaei added.
