MUM­BAI: The re­vised draft De­vel­op­ment Plan (DP) 2034 — the city’s blue­print for the next two decades — drafted by the civic body, is set to see changes, as rec­om­mended by the sixmem­ber plan­ning com­mit­tee ap­pointed for hear­ing the sug­ges­tions and ob­jec­tions put forth by cit­i­zens. Af­ter the hear­ings were com­pleted last month, the plan­ning com­mit­tee ac­cepted around 1,500 sug­ges­tions and ob­jec­tions and is likely to rec­om­mend th­ese changes in their re­port, which will be sub­mit­ted to the new gen­eral body of cor­po­ra­tors af­ter March.

Is­sues such as an in­cor­rectly marked coastal road and the Ghatkopar-Mu­lund Link Road are likely to be rec­ti­fied on the rec­om­men­da­tion of the plan­ning com­mit­tee. Also, the cor­rec­tion of mis­takes such as widen­ing of roads that do not need to be widened, are likely to be con­sid­ered. The plan­ning com­mit­tee is also keen on keep­ing open spa­ces un­touched and cor­rec­tions have been pro­posed wher­ever er­rors were pointed out by cit­i­zens, said civic of­fi­cials.
