Town and cities in India are undergoing continuous physical expansion and densification along with growth in urban population. Inner cores of many cities have older areas that require redevelopment to accommodate the present needs of the city. One of the key requirements is greater availability of land for public use like roads and other open spaces. Redevelopment for these areas can be undertaken by preparing a Local Area Plan.

A large part of city expansion takes place on urban fringes in an unplanned way. In such a scenario, agricultural plots with haphazard geometry are converted to urban use and little attention is paid to provision of urban infrastructure. Planned urban expansion can be provided through the Town Planning Scheme (Land Readjustment) mechanism wherein existing agricultural plots are merged and redistributed in a planned way after making deductions for street RoW and land for public uses. The urban infrastructure is financed by Value Capture Financing like betterment charges and sale of reserved plots.

The proposed sub-scheme intends to focus on these three vital issues; (i) Inner City Redevelopment through Local Area Plans, (ii) Planned Urban Expansion through Town Planning Scheme and (iii) ensuring training and capacity building of planners at the local level.

The last date of submission is 31st May, 2017

I live in thane and over the last two to three year seeing a massive work done in improving the road network in thane I would like to suggest that as many of the roads are very wide and in the the process of completion we should include cycling tracks and implement road safety. This will help us in reducing carbon footprint and encourage the citizens to have a very healthy lifestyle. Once a week -cycle for work and incentives like food coupons etc can be given by the corporates and offices.
