Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEA) has taken lessons from Noida and Greater Noida to effectively implement a greenery plan for the city.
“Apart from green belts and parks, allottees will be required to plant trees in their premises depending on the size of the plot,” YK Bahl, additional chief executive officer of the authority, said. “A completion certificate will be issued only when allottees adhere to landscaping norms and plant mandatory trees,” Bahl added.
The authority allotted 26,000 residential plots recently. Possession of plots is expected to begin in the next two years. YEA will develop the area along the 165-km link road between Noida and Agra expected to be operational by March 2011.
For plots up to 12,000 square metre, one tree per 100 square metre of open space is needed. Of these, a minimum of 50% will be evergreen trees. Minimum space for landscaping is 25% of the open area.
In case of plotted development in group housing, plantation provision shall be as per Landscape Master Plan. On an 18-metre and 24 metre-wide road, alternate variety of evergreen and ornamental trees shall be planted. For residential plots one tree in every plot spread across 120sqm will be mandatory and two in plots betwen 120-300 sqm.
