Implementing the bdp dissemination for Pune


Published on

This is a presentation by CDSA on the bio-diversity plan proposed for Pune. In the light of the govt. giving into vested interests who would like to get the hill slopes developed, understanding the implications is very important for every citizen of Pune and maybe even India.

  • slide7- I purchased free hold plot of 3R at S> NO. 99/1 from Developer along with 80 plus others having clear titles with partly Residential zona in1982. Our plots were given NA certificate in 1987-88. So don't give false information. Also refer slide no9. Point 8.5 - All BDP areas don't fall under M8 hills. But evan if your survey is taken for granted as 'correct' you hidden motive is to force PMC to snatch these land from us and other middle class & original land lords / farmers at throw away cost by using tax payers money and after few years handover the same to fevoured MNCs on long lease of 99 years for the constructions of spas, amusement parks, recreational facilities for very very rich class who will take membership of few lakh rs. per year and afford to pay 300rs. for a cup of cofee and 1000 for a lunch in those cafetarias built on 4% permisible constructon. We are not fools to give our land for such things. We will fight for at least 20 years in court. SO DON'T EVEN DREAM of BDP to take place.

  • slide 5- luxurious tree growth !
    What luxurious tree growth is expected when the rain fall is just 70 cm.
    slide 11- Is type of tree or height of tree a big deal?
    Even if the BD Park is created U will need to make roads to manage it.
    slide 12- Photo not of Pune urban hills.It is from some forest from the Western Ghats.The animals
    are wild dogs-not found within 80 km of Pune.
    slide 13- How come huge breaks in the hills will change the climate? Very funny ,loose &
    unscientific claim.
    slide 14- There is hardly any indigenous flora and fauna found on the Pune hills now-a-days.
    The BD Park will belong to every Punekar- (Thats great thinking!) .But what about the
    present owners of the proposed BD Park land?
    slide 16- The photo again is not of Pune hills.The deer is Sambar deer ,not seen in Pune urban
    slides 17-19- All from Simhagad environs,which is not part of the proposed BD Park.
    slide 24- Rs.15000/- per share! Pune's population is 35 lakhs and 40 % of them leave in slums
    (14 lakhs in all).How many of them can afford this share price?

Implementing the bdp dissemination for Pune

  1. 1. Implementing the BDP Ways and Means Aneeta Gokhale BenningerProf. of Sustainable Development Planning and Executive Director CDSA 15th July 2010
  2. 2. Why BDP?• To Ensure Sustainability of our City as a live-able habitat• To ensure that we contribute to mitigating the impact of pollution created by us• To justify the continued growth by ensuring that our behaviour is not irresponsible and negligent towards the wellbeing and welfare of the future generations• To be true to our commitments towards Global society as signatories to the climate change convention• Be true Punekars and as usual give leadership to the country in this area of sustainable urban development Pune Urban Bio Diversity Park ©CDSA Prof. Aneeta Gokhale Benninger
  3. 3. Area under BDP• Bio Diversity Reservation proposed in the Development Plan for the 23 newly merged villages• Total area is 1646 hectares• 688 hectares belong to the Government• 958 hectares are privately owned• BDP proposed only on Hills• Hills defined as slope/gradient of 1:5 i.e. 20% and area encompassed by it.

  4. 4. Pune HillsWikipedia
  5. 5. •It is very important to understand that since welive on the edge of the Western Ghats andpartially on the Deccan Plateau we are located inan area of what is known as “Trap” topography or“Step” topography.•This is created by volcanic action where lavaflows create layers of rock. This creates areas ofslope interspersed with small flat areas whichlook like steps.•This, however is an integral part of the hillyterrain and ensures luxurious tree growth andwater recharge and integrity of Bio Diversity of Pune Urban Bio Diversity Parkthe area. ©CDSA Prof. Aneeta Gokhale Benninger
  6. 6. Deccan TrapFrom Wikipedia
  7. 7. What was the Law before this area was merged with the PMC?• This area came under the Regional Plan hilly zone (No Development Zone)• Under the regional plan not even .01 (1%) construction was allowed on the hills.• Once the area was merged with the PMC and the Draft Development Plan was published on December 31st 2002 all development is frozen and no permission can be granted in the interim until the new Development Plan is in place. Pune Urban Bio Diversity Park, CDSA, Prof. Aneeta Gokhale Benninger
  8. 8. What is the Current law regarding the Hill Top Hill Slope Zone in the PMC?• The law does not allow construction on gradients of 20% (1:5)• The law does not permit residential use• The law allows the following:• M-8 - Hills and Hills slopes Zone M-8.1 The following uses shall be permissible in the Hill Zone 1. All agricultural uses Pune Urban Bio Diversity Park ©CDSA Prof. Aneeta Gokhale Benninger
  9. 9. 2. Forestry and Nursery 3. Public Parks, Private parks, Play fields for recreation of all types 4. Public Utility Establishments such as electric sub-stations, receiving stations, sewage disposal, water works etc. 5. Swimming pools/Sports and Games, Health clubs, Cafeteria, Canteen, Amusement Park etc.Note: Maximum FSI shall not exceed 4% of the total plot with ground floor structure without stilts.

  11. 11. • A number of people have suggested that the flat “Step” part of the hill with no slope should be used for construction of Farm Houses where the plot size should be reduced from 1 acre to 20,000 sq. ft. and people made to plant trees (200 to 400) and after the trees have grown to a certain height (not specified either type of tree or height of tree) allow construction of .10 (10%)• Apart from the scientific reasons why such a thing should not even be considered, the “practical” question is how will anybody reach the flat part without a road which will have to be made along the gradient?• How will any services such as sewage, water supply, electricity, drainage etc be provided? Pune Urban Bio Diversity Park, CDSA, Prof. Aneeta Gokhale Benninger
  12. 12. Western Ghats Forest Wikipedia
  13. 13. • Even if .04 FSI (4%) is given to construct any building the utilities and services will take up an additional .33 (33%). With 4% it will add up to 37% .• Demolishing the hills to the extent of 37% at a minimum. This will happen along the entire area creating huge breaks in the hills leading to change in the climate for the worst. Once cut nothing can restore our hills.

  14. 14. What is proposed in the Plan?• The UN recommends a forest area of 12 sq. m. per person to ensure supply of clean air.• To Protect the Hills.• Hills act as “Lungs” of the city.• To reduce the carbon footprint of Pune City.• To preserve the remaining natural environment in & around the city.• To enhance the rich tapestry of indigenous flora and fauna.• To create a sense of ownership of the hills amongst the citizens.• To serve as a unique example to other cities in India and all around the world.

Total required foracquisition of private land will be approx. Rs 1006.25 croresfor paying 100% compensation at the 2010 market rates. 4%TDR will amount to creating 39 hectares of additional land in1 FSI buildable area. The market value of this land will be farhigher than that of the Hill area or BDP reservation areas. Pune Urban Bio Diversity Park ©CDSA Prof. Aneeta Gokhale Benninger
  22. 22. Legal Framework Acts to implement the BDP1. The Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning Act2. The Forest Act 19283. The Land Acquisition Act 18984. The Bio Diversity Act5. The Forest Conservation Act Pune Urban Bio Diversity Park ©CDSA Prof. Aneeta Gokhale Benninger
  23. 23. Funding and Facilitation• Mr. Jairam Ramesh, Minister MOEF is very keen that this project is implemented and has suggested the following sources of funding• The Green India Mission• The Sustainable Habitat Mission• The JNNURM• Urban Forestry under 74th CAA• CDM to earn carbon credits Pune Urban Bio Diversity Park ©CDSA Prof. Aneeta Gokhale Benninger
  24. 24. Clean Air Shares• CDSA suggests selling clean air shares to raise funding from citizens and creating a stake in the BDP. This will ensure sustainability of the BDP• Clean Air Shares for every 12 sq. mts. Should be issued per citizen of Pune. Land acquisition would cost Rs. 1060/sq. mt i.e Rs. 12600 per unit. Including planting, protection etc the share may be valued at Rs. 15,000 per share. This can be paid in installments. Corporates can contribute by using CSR to purchase shares for their workers.• The Population of Pune is 35 lakhs. Thus the potential is to raise 35lakhs times 15000. This means Rs. 5250 crores. ©CDSAPune Urban Bio Diversity Park Prof. Aneeta Gokhale Benninger
