Pilot on Formulation of Local Area PLan and Town Planning Scheme

The goal of the pilot is to support the preparation of Local Area Plans (LAP) and Town Planning Scheme (TPS) on a pilot basis in States/Cities and build local capacity for undertaking such tasks. Once adequate numbers of planners are trained in these processes, states should be able to replicate this exercise on their own in several of their towns and cities to meet the challenges of planned urban development.Below are given the key objectives of the pilot: 1.  Establishing a framework for redevelopment of existing areas through the development of LAP 2. Enabling planned expansion in peri-urban areas through TPS 3. Supporting Value Capture techniques to finance infrastructure investments 4. Creating enabling legal framework where required 5.  Training and certification of planners at city and state level to ensure proper implementation of the above strategies
