ALUVA: As a prelude to the unveiling of master plan for the development of Aluva on Thursday, the team from UK held discussions with representatives from various departments such as the RTO, KSEB and Police at Le Meridien Hotel on Wednesday.

“During the discussions, it was noted that Aluva was a town of great possibilities. Even though it is comparatively smaller in size, it has several advantages such as proximity to airport, seaport and water sources,” said Aluva municipality chairman M T Jacob. “It is a satellite town of Cochin corporation and its importance in the region would only be further enhanced once the Metro rail constructions are completed. The issue of rampant waste dumping into the Periyar river also figured in our discussions. We have requested their assistance in the construction of three waste treatment plants for Aluva. An amount of Rs 1 crore would be necessary for the same. In any case, the report that we would receive from the group of experts would be of great help in the formulation of any future plans,” he said.

Out of the 140 cities that the team comprising British High Commission, WS Atkins and INTBAU visited in India, Aluva is the only one from Kerala.
