HYDERABAD: The Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MA&UD) department has constituted a committee for considering change of land use cases on Monday.
According to a government order (GO), the committee will be headed by the principal secretary of MA&UD department. While the HMDA metropolitan commissioner, GHMC commissioner, town and country planning director and Kakatiya Urban Development Authority vice chairman are members in the committee, MA&UD additional director is a member convener.

The committee would consider all change of land use proposals under the jurisdiction of all urban development authorities, municipal corporations, municipalities and panchayats within master plan limits. There had been no committee for permitting change of land use for the past few months. The last meeting of the committee was held in united AP in December 2013 and no subsequent meetings were held due to bifurcation and elections among other issues.

Sources said that within the HMDA area itself, files seeking clearance for change of land use of about 1,000 acres are pending for the past eight months, especially residential projects proposed around the Hyderabad Growth Corridor.

Change of land use is required for construction of buildings, setting up industries or even plotting of open areas if the land is proposed to be used for a purpose other than mentioned in the master plan. For instance, if a particular area or land is earmarked for agriculture, and a builder wants to construct a commercial complex, he has to apply for change of land use from agriculture to commercial. Generally change of land use is not permitted near water bodies and bio-conservation zones.
