Coimbatore Urban Development Authority & Master Plan

Top Priority:

Coimbatore Urban Development Authority akin to the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority should be formed. Master Plan of 1994 and Building Rules (DCR) should be reviewed considering the present and future needs.

The unplanned growth and building activities in both residential apartments, commercial complexes and swelling population of vehicles are creating an enormous strain on the existing infrastructure. The most affected by this problem are those small residential colonies which are basically designed and equipped only for individual houses. Apartments, Group housings, and commercial complexes are being built even in small narrow roads without adequate infrastructure.

Coimbatore has till-now depended upon a general planning regulation more appropriate to slow growing small and medium towns. The enforcement of rules also requires to be strengthened as the degree of Compliance is poor.

Therefore, in the interests of efficient development management, it is right time to bring in a well thought out planning and building development guidelines to enable the government to put in place a transparent DCR and an enforcing mechanism.

So for a planned growth and sustained development of Coimbatore the following suggestions are to be considered and implemented.

  • 1.

    A separate body called CUDA (Coimbatore Urban Development Authority) shall be formed, in lines similar to Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority.

  • 2.

    Since the existing Master Plan was prepared about 20 years ago, i.e., in 1994, present land use may not be the same at present. Therefore, Master Plan maps with present land use may be prepared both for Coimbatore and Local Planning Area.

  • 3.

    Industries and Institutions function within the corporation area, when they shift the operation, the land shall automatically be converted for residential or commercial and other permissible uses.

  • 4.

National Investment and Manufacturing Zone in Coimbatore

Government of India is setting up National Manufacturing and Investment Zones (NMIZ) in India to boost manufacturing, at a cost of about Rs 15,000 Crores each. We request that Govt of Tamil Nadu should seek one of the NMIZ be located in Coimbatore to attract large industries which would provide markets for the small and medium industries located in Coimbatore.

A National Investment and Manufacturing Zones (NIMZs) is to be developed in Coimbatore as integrated industrial township with state-of-the art infrastructure and land use on the basis of zoning; clean and energy efficient technology; necessary social infrastructure; skill development facilities, etc., to provide a productive environment to persons transitioning from the primary sector to the secondary and tertiary sectors.
