CDA to Penalize Housing Schemes by Enforcing Zoning Regulations in Islamabad

After sealing a number of illegal housing societies in Islamabad, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has decided to enforce the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Zoning Regulations of 1992.

The authority has issued a notification to the owners of housing societies and schemes in this regard, directing them to follow the prescribed regulations before starting a housing scheme.

Earlier in October, the CDA had sealed the offices of nine housing societies to discourage the establishment of illegal housing projects. The sealed housing schemes include Ayesha Town, the Islamabad Cooperative Housing Scheme, Gulf Residencia, Royal City, Royal Residencia, Dreamland City, Babar Enclave, Ideal Residencia, Rawal Enclave, and the Yar Muhammad Society.

A CDA official explained that the federal capital is divided into five zones under the ICT Zoning Regulations and that housing projects are only allowed in Sector E-11 of Zone-I, in Zone-II, and in Zone V.

The regulation was amended in 2010 to include Zone-IV that is divided into sub-zones where the Agro Farm Scheme are other schemes are permitted.

The CDA has two directorates that regulate the development of private housing projects in Islamabad: the Housing Department that is responsible for Zone-II and Zone-V, and the Regional Planning Directorate that manages Zone-IV.
