Mumbai: The state government has given Mumbai citizens another chance to file suggestions and objections to the recently-released Mumbai Development Plan (DP) 2034. The DP was released on the state government’s website on Thursday, asking for suggestions and objections.
Among the major changes, the Mumbai DP has earmarked 33 hectares in Aarey Milk Colony for the activities related to the Metro 3 car shed.
Activists have criticised the opening of the Aarey land for the metro rail and the matter against the state government’s notification regarding denotifying 33 hectares of No Development Zone is being heard in the Bombay High Court. “The matter is already being heard in court, however the state government has finalised the site in Aarey for the metro car shed. Another matter regarding an alternative site at Kanjurmarg for the metro car shed is being heard in the court,” said Zoru Bhathena, Mumbai-based activist.
The DP will come into effect a month after its published in the gazette. Citizens can submit their suggestions and objections to the Town Planning Department for another 30 days.
