Sat, July 24, 2021 Publication
The Center for Urban Planning and Policy (CUPP) was tasked by the Gujarat Real Estate Regulatory Authority (Guj-RERA) for drafting “Manuals for preparation of Development Plans (DP), Town Planning Schemes (TPS) and Local Area Plans (LAP)”. CUPP, in close collaboration with Guj-RERA, conducted several meetings with stakeholders and experts including senior officials from the urban development department and CMO, Govt of Gujarat, developers, and domain experts. The manuals, prepared after much study, are intended to provide clear guidance to the young planners and be a good reference for officials and practitioners. The purpose of these manuals is to make the process of preparing DP, TPS and LAP efficient; provide stagewise guidance and bring everyone on the same platform; articulate the process to young planners, and integrate high-quality urban spatial planning with statutory processes for sustainable developments. The drafts are available for consumption and for receiving suggestions and recommendations for value addition from all stakeholders.
