CHANDIGARH: The Haryana Government has framed a policy for planned development of low density eco-friendly colonies so as to discourage the spread of farmhouses in a sporadic manner in the agricultural zone. The policy focuses on eco-friendly design principles.

According to the locational norms, grant of licences for the establishment of the eco-friendly colonies would be considered in the agriculture zone of development plans at a minimum aerial distance of 500m from the existing limit of urbanisation. No such colony would be allowed in the blocks notified by the Central Ground Water Board.

The site should be in a compact block and the colony would be permitted in the area falling within 500m of any National Highway.

Minimum area requirement for the establishment of such colony would be 100 acres. There would be no upper cap on the area.
