Vision of Bawal Master Plan 2021
The overall development plan proposes to divide the urbanizable area into seventeen sectors containing various urban land uses viz; industrial, residential, commercial, public and semi public uses, transport and communication etc. The location of various land uses have been planned on the plan keeping in view the existing conditions, geographical aspects, easy flow of traffic and infrastructural facilities available to support proposed use. The rest of the controlled area beyond the urbanizable zone has been kept as agricultural zone.
Objective of Bawal Master Plan 2021
The draft development plan Bawal as a part of Bawal Master Plan 2021 has been prepared for the project population of one lakh persons by year 2021. The existing town covers a total area of about 78 hectares. Presently most of the development of Bawal town is limited only to the west of National Highway 8. However, keeping in view of the limited strip of land available to the west between the state boundary of Rajasthan and the National Highway No. 8, the urbanization proposals have been kept on both sides parallel to the existing National Highway in order to plan a compact area for future developments and keeping in view the present development trends.
The Bawal town has primarily been conceived to be developed as an integrated self contained Industrial Growth Centre. Its strategic location on National Highway and the expansion of existing industrial estate is favoring further potential for industrial development, therefore industrial land use constitute maximum share in the proposed draft development plan under the Bawal Master Plan 2021.
