  3. 3. Introduction • Planning is a continuous process & planning system should be such that it ensures continuity. • Earlier town planning was a piecemeal process but after Independence the city planning experienced tremendous growth & challenges for resettlement due to political changes. • Several resettlement, new Industrial base towns & urban centers were under process of planning & masters & town planners conclude that land use plans are needed to guide development of urban centers to promote orderly development & healthy living environment. • For this purpose the ministry of Urban affairs & employment, governing of India organized a national workshop on master plan approach during February 24-25, 1995. The research study of this workshop awarded as UDPFI – Urban development plans formulation and implementation guidelines.
  4. 4. The Need of guidelines: The study of UDPFI norms and standards is needed to evolve: System that is dynamic, flexible and efficient. Process that is less time consuming. Innovative ideas of land assembly and fiscal resource mobilization Simple & effective form of laws, rules and regulations.
  5. 5. Urban Development Planning system It consist of a. Perspective plan: 20-25 years duration . Includes Maps & Diagrams . State government’s goal, policies, strategies of urban local authority regarding spatio-economic development. b. Development plan : Conceived within Frame work of approved Perspective plan. Medium Duration for 5 years. Proposals for socio-economic & spatial development of urban centers Including land use.
  6. 6. c. Annual plan: Conceived within the frame work of Development plan.  Details of new & ongoing projects for local authority to implement in financial year Necessary fiscal resources mobilization. d. Plan of Projects/schemes: •Conceived within the frame work of approved development Plan. •Includes detailed working layouts with cost of development, source of Finance & recovery instruments for Execution by a public or private agency.
  7. 7. Norms and standards Distribution of land use Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure Commercial facilities Recreational facilities • Developed area average densities • Work force • Proposed land use structure of urban centers in plain area
  8. 8. Urban center classification Settlement type Population Plain areas Hill areas Small town Less than 50,000 Less than 20,000 Medium town 50,000- 5lakh 20,000 less than 80,000 Large cities More than 5 lakh 80,000 and more Population based

  30. 30. Traffic and Transportation Commercial facilities Recreational facilities InfrastructureDistribution of land use Classification of Urban roads Design standards of Urban roads roads Norms and standards
  31. 31. Norms and Standards for Transportation Classification of Urban roads: Arterial Road: Roads for intra-urban traffic with no frontage access. •Sub-Arterial Road: Roads for intra-urban through traffic with frontage access. •Collector road: Streets for collecting and distributing traffic from and to local streets and also providing access to arterial and sub arterial roads. •Local Street: Street for access to residence, business or other abutting property, having necessary parking and pedestrian movement free access too.
  32. 32. Design Considerations of urban roads Road type Speed Width Arterial 80 kph 50-60 m Sub-Arterial 60 kph 30-40 m Collector street 50 kph 20-30 m Local street 30 kph 10-20 m Cross-Sectional Elements: Description Width Single lane without kerbs 3.5 m 2-lane without kerbs 7 m 2- lane with kerbs 7.5 m 3-lane with/without kerbs 10.5/11 m 4-lane with/without kerbs 14 m 6-lane with/without kerbs 21.0 m Comment – •These road widths shall be improved with informal parking on roads.
  33. 33. • Comment - • These is one of the Important feature as many services can be laid down under Footpath • It gives surface for pedestrian movement. • These are usually not identified or demarked on site, • Hence measures & regulations for footpath shall be improved. Foot path (side walk) Capacity Required width of footpath (m) All in one direction In both directions 1220 800 1.5 2400 1600 2.0 3600 2400 2.5 4800 3200 3.0 6000 4000 4
  34. 34. Cycle tracks •The minimum width of cycle tracks should be 2m.each additional lane, where required should be 1 m. •Separate cycle tracks should be provided when the peak cycle traffic is 400 or more on routes where motor traffic is 100-200 vehicles/hr. •When number of motor vehicles using routes is more than 200 per hour, separate cycle tracks are justified even if cycle traffic is only 100 cycles per hour. •These are still Missing on many Urban Roads hence Regulations needs to be effectively developed. Parking Equivalent car space for different vehicles. Car/taxi 1 Two wheeler 0.25 Auto rickshaw 0.50 Bicycle 0.10
  35. 35. a) The minimum parking space requirements for each car and truck is : Car : 3m X 6m Truck : 3.75 m X 7.5m a) Residential - Detached, semi-detached and row houses Plot area upto 100 Sq.Mt – no private or community parking space Plot area:101-200 Sq.Mt – only community parking space Plot area:301-500 Sq.Mt- minimum 1/3 of open area for parking Plot area :501-1000 Sq.Mt- minimum 1/4th of open area for parking Plot area: 1001sq.m +- minimum 1/6 of space area for parking a) Flats :- - one space for every two flats of 50-90 Sq.Mt or more of floor area - one space for every flat of 100 Sq.Mt or more of floor area Parking Space Requirements • Comment - • Norms for Public Parking on street & off street shall be revised including the width of roads. • Multi-level parking System By government shall be encouraged.

  37. 37. Conclusions Land for Urban poor •In Mumbai more than 50 % of population are slum dwellers but they occupy only 8% of land. •The Development plan consists of various zones such as Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Recreational, No Development Zone, Coastal Regulation Zone, but there is no allocation of space for urban poor's, pavement dwellers which is growing population & which needs immediate attraction to make Mega cities more appealing in aesthetically & functionally. •It is the Task to reform the Strategies, policies by Central ,State & local governments to serve the interest of urban poor. •The Reserved plots & Coastal Regulation zone Norms can be modified to accommodate the land For Urban poor.
  38. 38. Low Fsi • In India the Fsi ranges between 1.2 to 2% in large cities & 5 to 6 % in mega cities in special cases. • The low value of fsi tends to more consumption of land & hence Shortage of land is faced for future development. These affects the lower & middle income group households due to Increased price of land. • In Asian countries the fsi Practiced is between 5 to 15.Hence for affordability point of view, the fsi shall be increased to cater the demand of land for future needs. Educational Facilities • For safety Purpose the additional Space allocation for Peak Hour traffic in front of any school, colleges & other Institutions shall be provided. • Primary & secondary schools to be used in Double shifts with Bigger intake for efficient use of land. • Educational & institutional Zones must be crated in Master plan.
  39. 39. Land Regulations • Land regulations shall be revised to reduce the difference between what is allowed & what is Financially feasible. • These can be achieved by More compact cities, more efficient Land Use & Primary Infra structure. • Increase in consumption of fsi. • Decrease in Trip length due to compact cities. • Urban population density will likely to stay Constant due to efficient land use.
