Fearing more chaos, citizens oppose draft zoning norms 22.7.2017 deccanherald.com
Citizens' groups on Saturday launched a multipronged fight against the government's proposal to allow shops and businesses on roads as narrow as 30 feet. The zoning regulations, a draft of which DH accessed first, make it easier for commercial establishments to come up on congested roads where they are now prohibited. Citizens' groups will send objection letters to the government, besides postcards to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. They also plan to make a film to alert people on the consequences of the proposal. Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) from Indiranagar, Koramangala, Basavanagudi, Jayanagar, Whitefield and other neighbourhoods met on Saturday at the East Cultural Association, Indiranagar.

New rules to regulate apartment construction 14.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The state government proposes to regulate construction of residential apartments through new Zoning Rules. The draft common Zoning Rules (ZR) notified by the Urban Development Department recently, stipulate the minimum size of the plot for a residential apartment should be 500 square meters (5,381.56 square feet) and minimum width of the road the plot is facing should be 9 meters (30 feet). Currently, there are no such curbs. The proposed rules would take prospective effect. The new rules would apply to all urban local bodies across the state, including Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP). "Apartment buildings" mean one or more buildings, each containing more than four dwelling units, as per the notification. The ZR is aimed at uniform urban development. "Apartments are mushrooming in the fast-developing cities like Bengaluru and Mysuru. In the absence of proper regulation in the existing master plans, apartments are being constructed everywhere. Apartments are coming up even on 30/40 and 60/40 sq ...

Govt apathetic to vanishing lung spaces, allege residents 12.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The demand for protection of parks, playgrounds and open spaces is growing louder but citizens say the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) are doing little to save them. Take the case of an 'open space' in Jeevan Bima Nagar. The residents have been fighting a legal battle since 2009 to reclaim it. BDA handed over this piece of land to four organisations to build structures. M S Anand, president of JB Nagar Residents' Welfare Association (RWA), said the BDA's comprehensive development plan of 2005 and 2015 clearly showed 'Site No-2' of the layout as a green area, which means no construction activity is allowed. A park had been carved out of this piece of land. The BDA allotted the rest of the land to four organisations including Mogavira Sangha, which is constructing a building, he said. "A couple of years ago, the BDA notified this place as a yellow zone. Subsequently, construction work started. We challenged it in the high court and got a stay against ...

The Supreme Court on Monday pulled up the Karnataka government for challenging quashing of a criminal case against BJP MLA and former minister Aravind Limbavali for allegedly facilitating illegal constructions by a real estate firm by revising master plan in Bengaluru South taluk.

Palike in a fix over zoning violations 21.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The order of the High Court of Karnataka banning commercial buildings in "residential main area" is flagrantly violated along the 10th Main Water Tank Road and surrounding areas in Indiranagar. Several commercial buildings dot this road, classified as "residential main zone" in the comprehensive development plan of the Bangalore Development Authority. The ward engineers of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), in reply to RTI queries by residents, admit that these buildings not only violate zoning regulations, but also lack trade licences. Yet, these buildings are intact and do brisk business. "Imagine a situation where 60-70 people are in an office adjacent to a residential building. Opening the windows of our house would mean that we are constantly under the gaze of these strangers. Our privacy has gone for a toss," says Praveen S, a member of Indiranagar Second Stage Residents' Welfare Association. Pubs and spas, he says, have added more to the nuisance. "God knows what all happens inside ...
