“We are preparing a detailed project report for developing a township and a green belt on the lines of Kailasagiri Hill, gated communities, shopping area, international school and other amenities on these hills,” said VUDA vice-chairman T Baburao Naidu, during the Meet-the-Press organised by the Vizag Journalists’ Forum here Thursday.

The Errakonda Hill near Sujatangar has been also identified for development by the VUDA.

The VUDA is also taking up development projects in Vizianagaram, Srikakulam and East Godavari districts under its purview. In Vizianagaram, the VUDA proposed to construct Gajapathi Stadium, Tank Bund and a green city project apart from a major road laying project.

Similarly, it proposed to take up central lighting system and major road development apart from development of Kodi Rammurthy Stadium in association with the Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh in Srikakulam district. An auditorium costing `3 crore and widening of the main road will be taken up in Tuni. Another auditorium and road-widening projects will be taken up at Anakapalle.
