Yogi suggests master plan for development on lines of SCR

Sunday, 25 February 2024 | PNS | Lucknow

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, on Saturday, reviewed the master plan for development of Ramnagar (Varanasi), Moradabad, Hapur, Rae Bareli, Bareilly and Lucknow.

The chief minister directed the officials to prepare a regional development plan on the lines of the State Capital Region (SCR) by keeping Varanasi at the centre and connecting the border districts.

“The Lucknow Development Authority should be expanded till the border of Lucknow district in which many villages are included in the master plan. Make sure that the inhabited land is not declared green land,” he added.

The Master Plan 2031 of districts Ramnagar (Varanasi), Moradabad, Hapur, Rae Bareli, Bareilly and Lucknow was presented before Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in a high-level meeting held at his official residence on Saturday.

As per the major guidelines given by the chief minister in the meeting, the implementation of the master plan must proceed without delay. It is essential to engage with local public representatives and senior officials and execute the plan expeditiously. Many villages are now part of urban development plans and it is to be ensured these villages are not declared as green land. Populated land cannot be considered green land.

On the lines of the SCR, it is necessary to prepare a regional development plan by keeping Varanasi at the centre and connecting the border districts. A detailed action plan in this regard is to be prepared and submitted to the government as soon as possible.

The guidelines stress on further expanding industrial and commercial areas in the new master plan of Moradabad (Gajraula). This area holds immense potential and must be utilised effectively. Such expansion will not only boost the economy but also generate employment opportunities. The guidelines state that there is a need for a new bus terminal and bypass routes in Gajraula and it should be included in the master plan. Pipelines and CETP are also to be established for pure drinking water.

The guidelines state that the limits of the LDA should be extended to the entire Lucknow district. Additionally, the ‘State Capital Region Development Authority’ is being formed. These efforts will give impetus to planned and stable development in the state capital region.

Information about land use is to be made public. All data regarding land status, including details of each ‘khasra’, should be readily accessible online to the public.

The guidelines stress on conducting a comprehensive study of the present and future needs of all districts. Each district’s unique potential should be identified and encouraged within the master plan. Clusters should be developed to encourage local crafts and traditional products. Besides, space should be allocated in the industrial area for the establishment of industrial training institutes.

The guidelines state that development authorities must embark on a quest for innovative opportunities. They should extend their reach beyond the confines of the municipal corporation, broaden their horizons, and devise strategies to create fresh sources of revenue.

It stresses on integrating the development of religious and spiritual sites into the master plan.

Furthermore, concerted efforts should be made towards facilitating nearby residential accommodations for industrial workers.

The guideline states that efficient traffic management is a crucial aspect in urban areas, requiring collaborative efforts. It says designating locations for taxi-auto stands and street vendor zones is essential and land for this should be clearly identified in the master plan. It stresses on determining suitable space for multilevel parking.

The guideline says there is an All India Institute of Medical Sciences in Rae Bareli and it should be made a part of the master plan this time. New townships should be developed in the city and conservation of ponds and other water bodies should be prioritised, it adds.
