Kerala govt. plans new Act on town planning

Kerala Government is considering enactment of a new Town and Country Planning Act which would remove obstructions in acquisition of land for developmental activities, Minister for Self-Governance Paloli Mohammed Kutty said today.

Replying to a calling attention motion by V Sivankutty (CPI-M) in the Assembly, he said the High Court had directed the Government not to give exemptions to individual applicants for construction activities in special zones identified for urban development.

In the new Act, there would be provisions for amending the masterplans and district town planning schemes in accordance with the requirements of local people.

The minister said peoples' representatives would be consulted at all levels while implementing developmental programmes
