The Delhi Development Authority will hold public hearing to finalise landuse change in central Delhi for the redevelopment of ambitious Central Vista Project on 06-07 February.
The land owning agency had received nearly 400 objections against the proposed landuse change. Last year, the land owning agency had approved the proposal to change the land use of 101 acres of land, including a 15 acres plot from recreational to residential on Dalhousie road near south block to Prime Minister’s residence.
“A final decision to change the landuse would be taken after public hearing” senior official said.
“We had received nearly 400 suggestions/objections from architects, urban planners,activists and residents welfare associations regarding the land use change. A majority of it stresses on impact on public facilities due to land use change. We have called all those who had submitted objections regarding the proposed change,” said a senior DDA official aware of the development.
After the board of inquiry(public hearing), the suggestions/objections will be considered and necessary changes will be made in the final proposal to change the land use. The proposal will again be tabled in the authority meeting for final approval before it is sent to the Ministry of Housing and Urban affairs for final approval.
