Dead­line for DP feed­back ends to­day, city ac­tivists seek time

OPEN SPA­CES IG­NORED

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - FRONT PAGE - BLUE­PRINT

Dur­ing its sur­vey for the draft de­vel­op­ment plan 2014-2034, the civic body seems to have ig­nored the open spa­ces in pri­vate prop­er­ties such as Gar­o­dia Na­gar in Ghatkopar and Manish Na­gar in And­heri. doc­u­ments run­ning into at least 60 pages for each ward. Scru­ti­n­is­ing the ac­tual use and des­ig­na­tion men­tioned in the sur­vey is a time con­sum­ing process, say ac­tivists

The ear­lier draft, pub­lished in Fe­bru­ary, had sim­i­lar er­rors and had to be sent to the draw­ing board as it re­ceived more than 55,000 sug ges­tions/ob­jec­tions in two months Ac­tivists claim they also need to check if the sug­ges­tions/ob­jec tions given pre­vi­ously have been con­sid­ered. Vidya Vaidya, H-west fed­er­a­tion sec­re­tary, said, “Our fed­er­a­tion mem­bers had sent hun dreds of sug­ges­tions/ob­jec­tions We need to check whether those have been con­sid­ered or not, which needs time. A month is not enough to study the plan.”
