BMC releases revised draft DP
MUMBAI: There will no longer be a 9.15-metre-wide road cutting across three residential buildings at Pali Hill in Bandra; the proposed road has been deleted from the city’s draft development plan (DP) 2034, which the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has revised and released as phase 2.
The revision follows a road survey and specifies whether proposed roads are to be deleted from or retained in the draft. Citizens were up in arms against proposed roads that would have cut across their buildings and religious structures, and Pali Hill residents led a protest against the plan. Following this, most of the proposed roads at Pali Hill now stand deleted or re-aligned.
Similarly, a 9.15-meter-wide road proposed at Mt Mary Convent School in Bandra has also been deleted from the revised draft, which was submitted in the group leaders meeting at the BMC late on Tuesday.
The ward-wise draft will be made available on the BMC’s website on January 7.
