The Plan notified Thursday by the Haryana government will ensure that residential areas be developed on neighbourhood concept by making provision of all community facilities and services within the sectors on an average net residential density of 250 persons per hectare.
Keeping in view of water scarcity in Gurgaon, effort shall be made to develop all the sectors/colonies on zero discharge concept for encouraging the use of recycled water. An area of 50 hectares approximately has been earmarked in Sector 68B for providing housing to low and medium income group, while 215 hectares has been reserved for a university in Sector 68 to be set up by the government agencies.
The Development Plans of 2021 and 2025 were changed to cater to the population needs of 2031. Accordingly, 4,570 hectares earlier earmarked for setting up SEZs was replanned as there were no takers for SEZs. This has been the primary reason for initiating revision of Final Development Plan 2025, the Town and Country Planning department's notification said.
