Providing clarity on the reconstituted plots for the first time, the AP Capital master plan has revealed that the designated R3 and C2 areas near the villages will be given to the farmers.
The master plan revealed 22 per cent of developable land is proposed for medium to high density residential developments, corresponding to 70 per cent of the total residential area, the highest within the city. The medium to high density residential use primarily includes the land to be returned under Land Pooling Act, 2014. The medium to high density residential use facilitates detached, semi-detached, attached and mid-rise multifamily public/private apartments with common facilities within its compound.
The residential typology is dependent on the size of the land parcels to be returned to the landowners. The maximum allowable density of these clusters is about 110 dwelling units per hectare. As part of the Land Pooling Scheme, for every acre of agricultural land pooled, 800 to 1,000 sq yards of residential land has to be returned to the owner and 100 to 450 sq yd of commercial land has to be returned to the owner.
