Chandigarh, August 2
Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has allowed affordable housing projects in 50 acres in New Chandigarh, reducing the minimum area requirement from 100 acres, but without disturbing the density norms.
- The change of land use for certain categories of industries approved
- Industries in mixed land use zones along highways nod
- Special permission accorded for expansion of medical oxygen manufacturing plant in Mohali
- Town planning department told to relook at the red category industry
This would enable proper utilisation of the left-out pockets to provide housing facilities. The decision was taken at the 42nd meeting of the Punjab Regional and Town Planning and Development Board chaired by the CM through video conferencing.
The approval was also granted for change of land use (CLU) for certain categories of industries, in an effort to further boost industrial activity in the state. The CLU will be applicable on green and orange industries at a distance of 100 metres and 250 metres, respectively, from Lal Lakir or nearby Abadi (minimum 50 pucca houses) on minimum 6 karam (30-33 feet) approach road, under the policy of permitting industrial activity in agricultural zone of master plans. — TNS
