HMDA proposes schemes for future urbanisation
In order to promote sustainable and equitable development in urban areas and pave way for planned development of the future urbanisation, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) proposes to take up Sites and Services Schemes (S&SS) in a big way in its own land as well as in the Land Pooling Projects (LPP).
In this connection, it has decided to empanel consultants for S&SS and land pooling schemes in HMDA limits and invited expression of interest from agencies for empanelment of the said schemes. The S&SS includes development of land, plotting and development of required infrastructure such as laying of roads, drainage and storm water, water supply and street lighting etc.
Apart from preparing master plans, development plans, facilitating balanced development of infrastructure, undertaking infrastructure projects and coordination with all line agencies concerned with urban infrastructure services and development, the other primary function of the HMDA is to regulate and control developments through plans and other measures.
An HMDA official said they have developed more than 2,500 acres of sites and services schemes in and around the Greater Hyderabad limits. There will be survey of all existing infrastructure such as roads and junctions, storm water drains, water bodies, etc., within the scheme area for the purpose of design and estimation.
