Activists infuriated as NMMC draft development plan ‘lacks’ green focus

Updated on Apr 01, 2023 10:56 PM IST

The draft development plan by Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation has been criticised for the absence of concrete plans for environmental aspects such as rainwater harvesting, green energy, tree cover and wetland protection. The NatConnect Foundation said the plan failed to address the impact of the ongoing redevelopment of housing colonies, which will lead to 20-plus storey buildings and put pressure on water, sewerage, power and traffic. Despite having 232 gardens and 91 playgrounds, the city only has three square metres of open space per person, compared to WHO and AMRUT norms of nine to 10 sq m.
