Vision of Gohana Master Plan 2021
With the rapid increase of population, the town is sprawling haphazardly in the out strict. The Main haphazard development is witnessed towards western side of the town particularly on Jind road, Baroda road, Maham road and Rohtak road. Moreover, with the setting up of police lines and civil courts, 25 bedded civil hospital and grain market on Jind road, bus stand on Rohtak road, the prospects of development have increased towards western side of the town. Towards Northeastern and Southern sides of the town, the drain number-8 is the main physical barrier for its future expansion. As a result no major economic activity is coming up in this area. However, with the remodeling of drain number-8, the area has become almost free from floods, and thereby now, haphazard development has also started towards eastern side of the town particularly on Sonepat and Panipat roads.
Objective of Gohana Master Plan 2021
Keeping in view the natural trend of growth as well as prospects and limitations for its future. Development, the town is proposed to expand in a uniform way in all side of the town. The proposed land uses and circulation pattern have been coordinated with the existing town in a systematic way. In order to accommodate projected population of 1,50,000 persons up to 2021 A.D. and attempt has been made to prepare a development plan in a coordinated way for the controlled area, as well as for the areas falling within Municipal limits of Gohana town. However, the proposals shown within the municipal limits are not statutory and will only provide guidelines for future development.
