THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:Taking the residents’ concerns into account, the Corporation is all set to roll out a revised draft Masterplan 2031 for city development. In the first step, the National Remote Sensing
Centre has submitted the satellite map of the new masterplan to the Corporation’s Town Planning Department.
The corporation is set to begin implementation of the master plan after the completion of ongoing Killiyar Mission and Aksharasree project. The modified plan seeks to reduce the concerns raised by residents of several wards in the city’s periphery. While revising the previous controversial draft, the corporation has decided to include survey numbers to ensure transparency.
The masterplan rolls out a long-term perspective plan for guiding the future developments of the city. Based on the plan the corporation will provide permits for building constructions. The earlier draft plan had led to strong protests for many weeks in Kattayikkonam, Attipra and other wards. The action councils here had alleged that the master plan was aimed at helping the land mafia at the cost of the common people.
