Mumbai Development Plan 2034: It’s time to submit your suggestions, objections

You can now send in your suggestions and objections to the new Development Control and Promotional Regulations, 2034 (DCPR) till June 21, said the civic body on Tuesday. The DCPR determines construction rules like how high a building can be constructed and road breadth that will be followed for the next 20 years. The development plan is a blueprint of the city’s growth for the next 20 years.

Earlier this month, state government had announced the Development Plan (DP) 2034 i.e. reservation on plots and DCPR. The DP was divided into two parts – sanctioned, and excluded part (EP). Citizens can send in their suggestions and objections for the EP (DCPR) as it carries the changes made by the state government which are substantial in nature, while the EP (reservations) will be opened for suggestions/objections once the plans are published. A development plan official also informed that the civic body will soon release the maps showing the reservation areas.
