Mumbai Metropolitan Region Concept Plan
The concept plan aims to transform the Mumbai Metropolitan Region into a world-class metropolis with a vibrant economy and a high standard of living. To reposition the city on the international stage, the concept plan envisioned the region to be “A Global City” and the financial and cultural gateway of South Asia.
The Concept Plan addressed the City’s resource limitations by increasing government land bank through land reclamation to the east of the city core. A two-fold expansion of the Central Business District would relieve the development pressure in the existing core, while reviving the older parts of the City.
The regional urban areas are reorganised into self-sustaining satellite cities ensuring adequate affordable housing, public greens, social amenities and urban infrastructure.
