Brief description of the lecture
Land is a limited resource. Today more than half of the global population lives in urban areas. While globally, we continue to urbanize, it is crucial that we plan our cities not only for horizontal expansion but also for making more efficient use of the existing developed areas. This requires careful planning at both macros as well as micro levels. The Development Plan (DP) -Town planning Scheme (TPS)-Local Area Plan (LAP) mechanism is one such mechanism that allows planned urban rejuvenation and revitalization of the existing urban areas and the heritage precincts.
