Subject : Non-Availability of Green & Open Space in New Sectors namely 58 to 115 in Gurugram

Respected Sir,

We, the residents of Gurugram, want to draw your kind attention towards a major concern of Gurugram, specially the new sectors 58 to 115. Gurugram is being developed on urban town planning concepts, however one of the most critical aspect has been ignored by the Haryana Authorities. This is the availability of Green and Open space in the new sectors.

It is worth mentioning that Green/Open space in urban area provides many advantages: formal and informal sport and recreation, preservation of natural environments, provision of green space and even urban storm water management. Thus, green space must be a key consideration in urban planning if the health of a city and its people are both considered very important.

Multiple lakhs of resident famlies & commuters of these areas are supposed to be the prime sufferers, as they will be deprived of open/green spaces promised in their localities along Golf Course Extension, Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) and Dwarka Expressway. Actually, it has a strong ripple, adverse impact on the environment of whole of Gurugram and neighboring areas of Delhi too, as air pollution knows no boundaries.

Thousands of crores of External Development Charges have been deposited by Home Buyers for the development of these new areas as per the approved plans at the time of purchase, still HUDA/GMDA/HSVP is unable to acquire land for open/green space in new sectors. The land acquisition plan for this cannot be dropped on pretext of lack of fund as the same has already been paid by us in the form of EDC/IDC.

Is this fair treatment to residents/homebuyers/investors of Gurugram?

How can Govt. allow millions to suffer amid huge pollution, congestion and poor standard of living of the city?

It is high time that the Govt kindly acknowledges the green-spaces as a basic, critical necessity for public and not an optional requirement of the city.

We the residents, home buyers of Gurugram request your kind intervention in this regards to ensure appropriate land acquisition, and development of dedicated Green Belts, Green Parks and other open space in these sectors on available land, as per urban town planning guidelines for the benifit of public at large.
