In a big step towards resumption of work in the stalled housing projects of Noida Extension, a statutory committee of the NCR Planning Board (NCRPB) on Thursday approved the revised draft Master Plan-2021 for Greater Noida and recommended it to the board.
In October 2011, the Allahabad high court had stopped construction in the area saying the Master Plan had not been approved by the board.
Government sources said the NCRPB, headed by Union urban development minister Kamal Nath, is now expected to meet within a fortnight to look at the Master Plan. Once the board approves it, work can resume in the housing projects of Greater Noida, particularly in the area popularly known as Noida Extension.
Though the board can make some suggestions when the plan is put before the members, the draft plan is likely to be cleared. The statutory committee is satisfied with the changes incorporated by the Greater Noida Authority, a source added.
The draft development plan for Greater Noida-2021 has included provisions for water supply, sewerage, drainage, power and solid waste management, as per norms.
We have a complete and all-inclusive development plan before us. The authority has identified sites for solid waste management and has also earmarked them in the plan. It will not make any changes in the future. All environmental issues have been addressed in the revised plan, said an official.
The revised plan has also incorporated a provision of keeping 16% of the urbanizable area as a green belt.
