A revised and final master plan of AP capital Amaravati was released by the minister for Municipal Administration and CRDA Chairman P Narayana. The master plan was prepared after resolving the severe concerns raised during the draft plan which was released on December 26 last year.
In the draft plan, objections were mainly raised by the local villagers on the capital city's roads in Tullur, Anantavaram, Nekkallu, Dondapadu, Rayavaram, Involu and Sakavaram which were posing a threat to nearly 3600 residential buildings. The plan was later tweaked heavily on 6 roads to limit the damage to only 360 houses, quitting the previous plan of widening the internal roads.
Also, the returnable plots allotted to the farmers who gave away their lands for capital construction have been shifted in order to allot them near the express highway in Uddandrayunipalem and Tallayapalem, where the farmers of the seed capital donated their lands.
The AP government will issue a fresh notification for land pooling on February 28 and the farmers will be given a month's time to raise their concerns on the new master plan. Also, the best architect for Amaravati construction will be selected by the jury after holding a design competition.
