To avoid haphazard development around the periphery of the proposed Navi Mumbai International Airport, the state government has formally appointed City Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) as the special planning authority for the influence area of the proposed airport.
The notified influence area is about 600 square kilometres in area stretching over 270 villages located in six talukas of Thane, Uran, Karjat, Pen, Khalapur and Panvel.
CIDCO was appointed as the special planning authority for these regions by a government notification of the state government's urban development department dated January 10.
"The urban development department has directed CIDCO to prepare and publish development proposals and development control regulation for the area as per the MRTP Act of 1966 and submit the same to the government. Furthermore, with CIDCO's appointment as the special planning authority it has been declared that any other special planning authority functioning in the said area shall cease to function," a CIDCO spokesperson said.
While granting CRZ clearance to the Navi Mumbai International Airport, the Ministry of Environment and Forests had advised the state government to revise and recast the development plan so as to avoid unplanned growth around the airport region.
