The landscape of the outer Bangalore is set to change with the state government ready to bring in a new master plan with change sought by the Chief Minister.
The CM told the legislative council that a new comprehensive development plan (CDP) was required to put the brakes on uncontrolled growth in outer Bangalore. He said, draft of the master plan being prepared by Bangalore Metropolitan Region Development Authority was ready but I have directed the authorities to rework on some zones. Very soon the draft plan will be made public and invite objections before making it final. The new master plan will re-designate the commercial and industrial, agricultural, developmental, forest, grass land, waste land, irrigated and dry zones of outer Bangalore. The revised plan envisages a compact, balanced and equitable urban growth for the city. The land use and change of land use will be clearly defined by it. According to the master plan prepared in 2007, the BMRDA has 8,006 sq km.
