Hyderabad is getting its integrated master plan soon in a month after approval from Telangana State Government, being given final touches by Hyderabad Metropolitan Region (HMR). HMDA is yet to get approval after which it will be made public.
HMDA after much analysis about mapping factors could help Hyderabad town planning much more effective in bringing uniformity in zoning and land use stipulations. Before embarking on the project of the master plan it involved all the best expert people, urban town planners, stakeholders and developers.
“The draft master plan will soon be released after getting clearance from the state government. Citizens have been given a month to submit objections and suggestions on the draft plan for making changes and rectifications,” told HMDA metropolitan commissioner T Chiranjeevulu.
