The Delhi State Level Expert Appraisal Committee (SEAC) has put on hold clearance for at least six DDA proposals, including a residential complex in Narela, in the absence of a zonal development plan for the mega-sub city.
It has asked the housing agency to prepare a zonal development plan (ZDP) for the suburb before seeking clearance for any proposal in the area.
During a recent meeting, the SEAC noted that the DDA had proposed various developmental projects in Narela subcity even though it was yet to prepare its developmental plan and get cleared by it as per mandatory requirement for any zone.
"The project proponent should first get environment clearance for zonal development plan and then apply for green nod for section-wise projects in the sub-city..." said the SEAC members.
The DDA's Zonal Development plan in Narela sub-city, Rapid Environmental Impact Assessment for development plan of Sector G2 and G6, plan of G-7 and G-8, at NDZ (Narela Developmental Zone)-XII, integrated freight complex at NDZ-XII and proposed area development project at Sector G-3 and G-4 are lying pending with the panel.
The city has been divided in 15 zones (divisions) and as per Master Plan 2021, every zone should have a zonal developmental plan detailing out land use plan of the sub-cities in the national capital.
