1,500 changes based on your suggestions likely in draft DP
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.
