Haryana approves policy for parking in controlled areas
Haryana Town and Country Planning Department has approved a policy for grant of permission for parking in controlled areas.
Stating this here today, a department spokesman said that the policy had been formulated in view of the increasing problem of parking as a result of increase in traffic.
"There is no policy in the Department for grant of CLU permission exclusively for parking purpose in the controlled areas. Therefore, with the objective of providing more parking space to meet parking problem arising out of the big projects attracting vehicular traffic, visitors and workers, a policy for grant of permission for parking in agricultural zone or transport and communication zone adjacent to the CLU granted area or Special Economic Zone (SEZ) has been approved", he added.
He said that as per the policy, minimum area requirement for off site parking would be 2000 sqm. The project proponent was required to submit detailed justification in this regard duly showing the calculation in respect of workers and visitors and parking requirement. The site should be located in Agriculture Zone or Transport and Communication Zone.
