HYDERABAD: Finally, the revised draft master plan for the erstwhile Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad (MCH) is ready.
Before getting nod from the State Government, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) will call for suggestions and objections from the public by giving them time for two months.
Citizens can submit their suggestions and objections, if any, to the HMDA between December 18, 2009 and February 18, 2010.
The revised master plan makes provisions for an estimated population of around 60 lakh by 2031 with adequate reservation for future residential zones and related amenity areas.
The Draft Revised Master Plan and Draft Zoning and Development Promotion Regulations for erstwhile MCH area will be displayed and made available for inspection at the office of HMDA, Greenlands Guest House, Begumpet; Office of HMDA, GHMC Building, West Marredpally, Secunderabad; HMDA office, Tarnaka, Secunderabad; and at the GHMC circle offices in the erstwhile MCH area.
Speaking to Express, HMDA officials said that the erstwhile MCH area had transformed over the past three decades necessitating its updation, revision and consolidation of the said development area and zonal development plans. After a quick assessment of the present situation, consolidating various information available with GHMC and other organisations, the HMDA, in consultation with GHMC, has prepared a draft master plan for the erstwhile MCH area. The plan proposes to strike a balance between the growth of population, infrastructure, conservation of heritage and to rejuvenate the core city area and to provide for efficient and effective circulation network.
All the objections and suggestions will be examined before finalisation of the said plan and the same will be forwarded to the State Government for final approval.
