The chief minister, who is also chairman of HMDA board, chaired the 5th meeting of the authority at the Secretariat on Tuesday. The board also cleared preparation of master plan for the Secunderabad Cantonment area. While the HMDA covers 7,257 square kilometres, the Secunderabad Cantonment is spread over 42 sq kms. As of now, there is no master plan for the Cantonment area. The Secunderabad Cantonment Board (SCB), which administers the Cantonment area, had earlier requested the authority to prepare a master plan for the Cantonment area.

The meeting also ratified the Metropolitan Development Plan-2031 for Hyderabad Metropolitan Region (HMR), notified by the state government. Of the total HMDA area of 7257 sq kms, the plan covers 5,985 sq kms in 35 mandals of four districts. The projected population of HMDA is 1.84 crore for 2031.

The board also approved the Land Pooling Scheme (LPS) initiated by the authority. LPS is being taken up by the HMDA under pilot project at two places Edulanagulapally-Kollur and Pratapsingaram-Gowrelli. The chief minister gave the green signal for the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) master plan for HMR, Hyderabad Habitat Centre that would be taken up in an extent of 11 acres land at Khanamet. A detailed project report would be prepared for the centre. Another major project, Science City, being taken up at a cost of Rs 160 crore, and Eco Park at Kotwalguda and Education Hub at Jawaharangar were also cleared by the HMDA board.

HMDA officials informed that the authority intends to re-introduce green channel concept, where owners,property builders and developers would have the option to obtain approval of building permissions in a speedy manner within seven working days. The concept would be introduced in a phased manner making it applicable initially to layout approvals. The authority also agreed for restoration and conservation of nine clock towers in notified heritage buildings. The initiative has been taken by FI(Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry) with the help of HMDA for the conservation and restoration works.
