RDA to Develop Master Plan for Rawalpindi District

RAWALPINDI: The Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) chairman, Saif Anwar Jappa, has announced that the authority is preparing a master plan for the district for the next 25 years in collaboration with the local government.

He stated that separate areas would be allocated for housing schemes, industries, and central business, and that housing societies and industries would not be allowed outside of these designated areas.

As per the details, the Chairman stated that in accordance with government directives, agricultural land would be protected to maintain a clean and healthy environment.

He also requested citizens to provide suggestions regarding the Peri-urban Structure Plan and Site Development Zones on the RDA website.

However, it has been reported that the civic body has been trying to prepare the master plan for the last three years, with the process moving at a slow pace.

A senior official of RDA shared that this slow pace of work has allowed developers of private housing societies to construct without any hindrance.

He also criticized the authority for failing to regulate private housing societies in the district, stating that due to their indifferent attitude, developers were able to finalize housing schemes without fulfilling necessary formalities.

Furthermore, the official added that most housing schemes in the district were developed on smaller plots of land, which resulted in a lack of space for schools, colleges, parks, mosques, and graveyards.

The official also pointed out that the absence of graveyards in new housing schemes had led to an increased burden on existing graveyards in the city.

He also stated that under the law, private housing schemes were required to install sewage treatment plants, water purification systems, and arrange for water supply in their respective areas, but that there were no housing schemes in the district that meet these requirements.

The official further blamed the absence of a master plan for all the violations and stated that commercial areas existed in residential areas as no site had been allocated for industries or workshops in the city.

    Fazool loog fazool baatein,..

  2. If it is being done for the last three years and not complete till now, then I think they are not serious in doing that. And how it will be planned when all the lands and agriculture lands are already grabbed by property mafia I would say.
