New Delhi: As part of the development process for the Master Plan of Delhi – 2041, the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) on Wednesday organised a public consultation meeting with residents and RWAs.
Around 70 residents and representatives of the RWAs attended the meeting which was held on WebEx online platform from 11 am onwards.
Senior officers from DDA and NIUA asked the participants to share their suggestions towards improving the built environment, improvement of civic facilities and other planning concerns, pertaining such as redevelopment, open spaces, water supply, solid waste management and parking.
Issues related access, maintenance and security of shared and common spaces such as terraces, ground floor frontage, parks, common toilets, security facilities etc. were discussed in the meeting.
The RWAs shared that some colonies had adopted good practices for solid waste management while others still had the issue of collection and segregation of waste.

The participants agreed to partner in the improvement and redevelopment of their colonies in a planned and phased manner. Augmentation of existing infrastructure, ensuring fire safety and provision of lifts etc., were other concerns of improvement related to redevelopment and upgradation.
