Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has received 810 suggestions/objections from citizens on the roads survey uploaded on the civic body’s official website last month, as part of the revision of the development plan 2034.

The deadline for submitting the suggestions/objections was January 31.

The civic body will now scrutinise these suggestions/objections and make necessary corrections in the draft that is under revision. The civic body has received 650 suggestions/objections through letters, whereas the remaining 160 were received through emails.

The civic body was to revise the draft development plan 2014-2034 in four phases and has uploaded two phases; designation survey and DP roads survey online.

The civic body had received over 100 suggestions/objections to the designation survey and a corrected draft where the suggestions of the citizens were included was put on the website in first week of January.

Even after the DP department officials deleted 857 error-ridden road stretches from the draft DP, the citizens have sent 810 suggestions/objections in less than a month’s time. The earlier draft released in February had received over 55,000 suggestions/objections and hence was instructed to be revised by chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.

In the DP roads survey released in January, the civic body has also decided not to include road-widening and road lines in the draft DP 2034 and will be dealt with separately.

One of the civic officials said, “The suggestions/objections will be scrutinised and after going through documentation and carrying out site visits we will decide whether the objections need to be incorporated or not.”

The civic body has got an extension to release the draft DP till May 31 from the state government and is yet to complete the remaining two phases; drafting DCR and reservations survey.
