GURGAON: Residents of Suncity in Sector 55 have opposed the revised plan to construct buildings in the area marked as ‘undetermined (UD) use’, which the developers sent to the district town planner (DTP) for approval. They alleged that the revised plan proposes to encroach upon the green belt and community parks in order to develop more residential plots in the society.
When the township was built, the net planned area was 116.367 acres. The developers, however, have decided to increase the net planned area to 117.142 acres. About 0.775 acre of land was reportedly disputed and the developer couldn’t acquire it when the township was built. The green belt in C, E and F blocks is earmarked for construction of plots in the revised plan, residents alleged.
When TOI visited the areas, it found that the areas earmarked for construction of plots in the revised plan is a part of UD use area. It was later transformed to green belt.
“Hundreds of trees will be cut down and green belts will be destroyed,” said Sadhana, a resident of C Block.
“The areas that have been proposed for the development of plots in the revised plan were marked as UD use. We want to urbanize the area in a proper manner now. No green belts or parks will therefore be encroached for the development of the plots,” Sanjay Jain, vice-president, Suncity Projects, told TOI.
“I think the authorities should either ask the developer to revise the plan so that minimum the green area is occupied or all the trees from the green belts and parks should be relocated,” said Suresh Yadav, a city-based environmentalist.
