GOA: The town and country planning department (TCP) has notified 65 requests for change of zone in the Regional Plan 2021. Affected persons have been asked to submit their objections within two months. Except for two proposals, the remaining requests seek conversion of land to settlement area under Section 16B of the TCP Act.
The remaining requests for change of zone, which have been granted provisional clearance, are subject to public objections and reports from the agriculture, forest and water resources departments, chief town planner Rajesh Naik said.
“The TCP Board had directed that the proposals should be published and comments from the public be sought. Further deliberation will take place after receipt of reports from relevant departments and on receipt of comments, if any, from the public, after two months,” the notification said.
