You have 60 days to send feedback on development plan for three land parcels in Mumbai
Citizens will now have 60 days to submit suggestions/objections to the BMC.mumbai Updated: Oct 25, 2017 09:42 IST
Two months after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) passed the Development Plan (DP) 2034, it released a separate document for three land parcels in the city on Tuesday. Citizens will now have 60 days to submit suggestions and objections to the BMC.
The maps and plan related to the three land parcels are on display at the BMC headquarters near Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, said an official from the DP department. Citizens can send their feedback via post to the BMC headquarters.
The three land parcels — 39.3 hectares in the Oshiwara District Centre, 47.37 hectares of A block in the Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) and 27.37 hectares between LBS Marg and Mithi river in Kurla — were handed over to the BMC by the MMRDA in 2016. By this time, the DP-2034 had already been finalised, resulting in a separate document. The BKC land includes Bandra reclamation, Lilavati Hospital, ONGC Colony and a recreation ground. The plan includes development of a ramp connecting Bandra-Worli Sea link to Lilavati Hospital, which is likely to bring relief to commuters by reducing congestion during peak-hour traffic. It also reserves land between SV Road and Linking Road in Bandra for commercial and industrial zones.
To mitigate flooding around Mithi river especially in Kurla, the plan has reserved areas for three pumping stations. “We have earmarked areas for more social amenities,” said the official. After the plan of developing Central Business Districts (CBD) in Oshiwara, the BMC has reserved at least three large plots as commercial and two plots as industrial zones in the DP.
