Less than 70 Hours to save Pune from becoming a Concrete Jungle


LESS THAN 70 HOURS TO SAVE PUNE!

(& EVEN LESS IF YOU CANNOT HAND DELIVER IT YOURSELF)

SEND YOUR OBJECTION LETTER TO THE DRAFT DP TODAY!!
The new Draft Development Plan – Recipe for disaster – Will turn Pune into a Concrete Jungle!!
Hi there all,
The Pune Municipal Corporation has prepared a new Draft Development Plan which is a builders’ dream plan and a nightmare for the citizens..
The "Star" Attractions of the new Draft Development Plan:
  • Any vacant plot in the city can be grabbed by the PMC ie even if it’s in your society.
  • 4 FSI zone along the entire Metro corridor for half a kilometer on both sides – even if the Metro is never built! So Pune will have huge buildings on both sides of the proposed Metro.
  • 3 FSI for Cluster development in the city – entire blocks bulldozed for erecting new buildings.
  • 4 FSI for 4-star and 5-star hotels and private hospitals. More Buildings.
  • Open/Recreational Spaces reduced. Where will your children go to play?
  • River and Lakes to be paved over for more roads and housing complexes.
  • Hill Tops and Hill Slopes, Green Zones to be made into SEZs, IT Parks and Amusement Parks. This will mean a loss of green cover impacting Climate Change.  
  • No provision for Low Income Housing – so slums will come up everywhere at random.
  • The new Draft Development Plan is full of arbitrary and ad hoc proposals without any supporting studies or surveys.
