Srinagar Master Plan gets nod

The plan is a comprehensive planning exercise for ensuring sustainable development of Srinagar metropolitan area spread over 766 sq. km.

The state administrative council (SAC) under the chairmanship of Governor Satya Pal Malik has approved Srinagar Master Plan-2035 along with recommendations by the committee constituted by government for scrutiny of objections and suggestions received from stakeholders.

The plan is a comprehensive planning exercise for ensuring sustainable development of Srinagar metropolitan area spread over 766 sq. km. As already reported by Greater Kashmir, this is the third statutory planning exercise carried out in the last forty-five years to achieve city’s sustainable and sustained physical and economic growth.

A comprehensive public policy document, the Master Plan is in sync with ground realities which show a major shift from an archaic planning approach in terms of its land-use policy, development regulations, and mixed land-use regulations towards progressive planning, said an official statement.
