The Bombay high court has allowed the redevelopment of Chandan Cinema in Juhu, stating that the Works of Defence Act permits it. The court clarified that the height of the new structure must be limited to 15.24 meters as stipulated in the notification. The cinema hall was constructed in 1973 and the owner received a notice to pull it down due to its dangerous condition. After facing rejection from the defence authorities, the owner proposed a redevelopment plan within the height limit. Residents around the military station are disappointed with the judgment and are calling for the repeal of the notification.
