The Environmental Protection Agency, (EPA) says it will soon clampdown on unlicensed churches operating in the Volta Region.
EPA’s Director in the Volta Region, Hope Smith Lomotey, said some of the churches deliberately start operating before applying to be regularised.
He warned they will not tolerate the illegality regardless of the institution involved.
Mr Lomotey said they’ll strictly enforce the required standards for operating a church under the EPA’s regulations.
He explained that the move is also to address complaints of excessive noise caused by the unauthorised churches.
“Some [Churches] have applied for permits, others have not, so we are regularising those who have not. The challenge we have is that most of these churches, they establish before they apply for regularisation.
“But you are supposed to apply, and then after the application, we check and see if the place is conducive enough for such a facility.”
