Islamabad: According to press reports, the reconstituted commission for the revision of Islamabad’s master plan organised eight subcommittees on Wednesday (September 22) to study various elements of the city’s persistent difficulties.
The meeting was chaired by the Chairman of the Capital Development Authority (CDA), Amer Ali Ahmed, and was attended by members of the reformed commission as well as other board members.
Urban regeneration, transportation, climate change, health, education, mass transit, unlawful building, environmental degradation, and encroachment will all be investigated and resolved by the sub-committees. In addition, a public opinion portal will be built to encourage greater public participation in the master plan’s implementation. The final recommendations of the subcommittees will be made available to the general public prior to implementation.
A reconfigured commission to study the Islamabad master plan was formed in August. The original plan, developed in the 1960s, called for a 20-year review. Successive administrations, on the other hand, failed to do so, resulting in only minor changes. Using the official Islamabad Cadastral, which Prime Minister Imran Khan launched in September, the reconstituted council will analyse and amend the plan.
