Mum­bai: For the draft Devel­op­ment Plan 2014-2034, the BMC has now made the process of pro­vid­ing re­marks over the DP on­line. The DP re­marks over the 1991plan were al­ready on­line.

“Ear­lier when a builder would ap­proach the BMC seek­ing re­marks over the DP it would take around a fort­night. How­ever with this be­ing made on­line it could be given im­me­di­ately on pay­ment of Rs 2,000,” said a civic of­fi­cial.

Builder seek DP re­marks from the BMC as it is the first stage while when some­one is de­vel­op­ing a prop­erty any­where in the city. Navi Mum­bai: The wa­ter­front on the south side of Navi Mum­bai will be a hub of fun, food and frolic with float­ing restau­rants, yacht clubs, fish aquar­i­ums and fun ac­tiv­i­ties on land as the ma­rina to be de­vel­oped by Ma­ha­rash­tra Mar­itime Board (MMB) on a pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ship model has a pack­age of fa­cil­i­ties to be de­vel­oped for en­ter­tain­ment.

“The de­vel­oper or op­er­a­tor will be at lib­erty to de­velop and op­er­ate fa­cil­i­ties at the ma­rina at its own cost,” says the re­quest for pro­posal doc­u­ment while en­list­ing fa­cil­i­ties for the ma- rina to be de­vel­oped in Be­la­pur. The high­est bid­der in the rev­enue-shar­ing model will be the suc­cess­ful bid­der, MMB sources said.

The project states that the de­vel­oper may pro­vide ameni­ties at the ma­rina fa­cil­ity in­clud­ing berthing (min­i­mum 30 berths), shore fu­elling, boat stor­age, boat launch fa­cil­ity, boat fu­elling dock, wa­ter treat­ment plant, waste oil re­cy­cling, boat re­pair fa­cil­ity, walk­way bridge, dry stor­age fa­cil­ity, waste man­age­ment and bat­tery recharge fa­cil­ity. How­ever, ma­rina and non-ma­rina fa­cil­i­ties will be limited those per­mit­ted by the min­istry of en­vi­ron­ment and forests.”

The mar­itime board, at its pre-bid meet­ing, clar­i­fied that “it is per­mit­ted to have float­ing fuel barge based on com­pli­ance with safety norms” to queries of shore-fu­elling. Bid­ders wanted to know whether the board will per­mit a float­ing fuel berth as is cus­tom­ary at most in­ter­na­tional class mari­nas.

The re­quest for pro­posal states: “A to­tal area of 3 acres on land­ward side shall be pro­vided to the de­vel­oper for the devel­op­ment of the ma­rina fa­cil­ity...” The op­er­a­tor will have to ob­tain var­i­ous green clear­ances as the area is un­der CRZ and will de­sign, build, op­er­ate as per green norms and trans­fer in a pe­riod of 30 years.
