BENGALURU: Developing a string of satellite towns to decongest the rapidly growing city will get greater emphasis in the much-delayed Master Plan-2031.

Also called as Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP)-2031 for healthy future growth of the city, it has been proposed to develop satellite towns at Sathanur, Nandagudi, Bidadi, Kasaba (near Ramanagara) and Soluru (Magadi) in the draft CDP, which is to be finalised soon.

The Bengaluru Metropolitan Planning Committee (BMPC) meeting, chaired by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, discussed the draft CDP-2031, the measures to decongest Bengaluru and ensure better civic amenities for the city, whose population is expected to touch two crore by 2031.

“The draft CDP-2031 is getting final touches and it will be put in public domain soon to invite public opinion and suggestions for orderly growth of the city,” Bengaluru Development minister KJ George told reporters after the meeting.

George also said that the CDP will see geographical boundaries of Bengaluru expand in a big way and a committee headed by Additional Chief Secretary will come out with a report in this regard in accordance with Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act.
