Proposed Land Use 2021

PROPOSED LAND USE

 

 

Revised master Plan involves two planning operations, the first one   being redevelopment of the existing developed areas of the city for better living conditions and the second being the planning for future growth of the city depending upon the population growth of the city.

 

The proposed plan is for a projected population of about 1.75 lakhs, by the year      2021 A .D. The important requirements in the planning of this city are of the strengthening of the economic base of the city to serve the growing population by introducing industrial economy. Its character as an industrial cum service-based city is to be maintained and developed. The importance of the city as an administrative, educational and trading centre will continue with proposals for the expansion of these activities.

 

There is need to accommodate the future population of the city partly in the existing developed area by increasing the density and partly in the new extensions. New extensions are proposed keeping in view that the city should have a compact form with proper standards of light, air and living space. Since the city has a natural tendency of linear growth along the highway the same tempo has been kept up for future growth also. There is no land for expansion towards the Kadur road. New extensions are proposed towards south, South-east, south-west and North-west. The existing built-up area of the city is 1066.01 hectares. The proposed plan covers an area of 2249.36 hectares.

 

Road pattern is proposed to inter-connect the different areas of the existing city as well as the new extensions proposing a compact homogeneous unit for efficient working. In addition to the Central Business District, Commercial centers are proposed in different parts of the city. The residential areas will also have day to day shopping centers.

 

Parks and open spaces are provided for recreation as well as to serve as lung spaces to reutilize the city. Sufficient area has been earmarked for expansion of industries in the city.

The gross density of population works out to 80 persons per hectares. The total area of the master plan including the water-sheet is 2293.57 hectares. The details of various land-uses proposed are described below.

 

 

9.2: RESIDENTIAL USE

 

The total area required has been worked out and the residential area of the city comprises of about 50.17 % of the total area, The whole city is organized in to seven residential district with population ranging these residential districts will have to be provided with market, edu­cational and health facilities, parks and playgrounds and public buildings like post office, police Station etc. Recreational facilities like clubs, library, cinema and community halls are provided keeping in view, the group of neighborhood units and the population they serve making a residential district. At the residential district level, facilities like college, hospitals, community centers etc., are also to be provided. These residential districts will form self-contained neighborhoods which reduce the pressure on the core of the city in respect of housing, shopping, community facilities, traffic etc. These residential districts are to be well connected by roads to make them accessible mutually, for all these conveniences, provision has been made in the proposed Master Plan.

The residential development has been proposed on all the parts of the city.       Chikmagalur urban development authority has formed residential layout along bye pass road, in addition to this housing board has taken up housing scheme along with sites and services. Few layouts have been developed by private developers.

 

Where ever govt offices, semi govt offices or statutory bodies are located in pvt buildings, the original /predominant land use of that locality has to be restored, as and when requested by the owner of that building

 

                                                                   

9.3: COMMERCIAL USE

 

The area proposed for commercial uses forms 4.32 percent    of    the     total     area.

The importance of the old town as the Central business District is maintained. But to bring-down the congestion in the Central Business District, shopping centers have been proposed in all the resi­dential districts.

 

Each neighborhood unit will have few shopping areas. The neighborhood market are to be developed by the local bodies with shops for day to day needs and service industries like laundries, tailoring shops, cycle shops, scooter Garages, radio and electrical repairs, etc. The shopping area proposes to encourage the private businessmen to own their own buildings.

 

The regulated market is located in the western part of the city on K.M Road.

 

 

9.4:   INDUSTRIAL USE

 

For industries 5.19 percent of the total area has been reserved. This includes the existing area covered by the coffee curing works, saw mills and the industrial estate. At present Chikmagalur District has been declared as industrially backward and the Government is giving incentives for industries in the district. This will accelerate the industrial activity.

 

The facilities require for industrial development like power, water and labor are available in this region. There is wide scope for establishment of Agro based industries. The new railway line from Kadur-Sakleshpur is an added incentive for the location of industries in the city.   Most part of the industrial area is proposed towards the western side of the city along the new proposal ring road.

 

 

9.5: PARKS, PLAYGROUNDS AND OPEN SPACES

 

The total area reserved for parks, playgrounds and open spaces is 10.12 per cent of the total area. Small open spaces in the residential areas have also been included in this area. Apart from the existing parks and open spaces, new areas have been earmarked for this purpose in the extensions for recreation. An existing jail which is on I.G road when shifted to its new premises near Mahatma Gandhi Park has been proposed for a open space which can create a beautiful lung space in the heart of the town.

 

Green strips are proposed along the valleys. An 18m wide green strip has been proposed in extension areas and 9m wide has been proposed in the developed areas to avoid encroachment to the valleys which are very important for the natural flow of water. Where ever the green strips are not provided it is made clear that either 18m or 9m has to be followed according to the proposal as said above. These green strips can be developed as leisure valleys with pedestrian walks, informal planting of shady and flowering trees etc. These park strips will provide for the enjoyment of naturalistic land­scape, religious buildings, children's park and other recreational uses would also be located in these green strips.

 

The parks and open spaces provided in the extensions should be developed for the purpose before the area is developed. This will attract the public to build their houses and will also be convenient for them.

            

 

9.6: PUBLIC AND SEMI PUBLIC USES

 

Land requirement under public and semi-public uses has been worked out on the basis of future demand for offices and other community facilities like hospitals, educational institutions etc. The area reserved under these categories forms 8.80 percent of the total plan area. The villages which are not included in the conurbation area   has been provided with adequate space for public uses like schools and colleges, health centers and hospitals, public offices etc., depending upon the population it serves. The ancillary land-uses within the public institutions like residential quarters open-spaces etc are included in the respective land-uses for the purposes of land-use analysis.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9.7: PROPOSED CIRCULATION

 

The total area covered under traffic and trans­portation forms 21.20 percent of the total area of the development plan. This includes the State highway, Railway line, major and minor roads both proposed and, existing and also the area covered by the existing KSRTC bus-stand, proposed new Bus stand, railway station and the new proposed Private bus stand on Mallandur road.

 

A truck terminal is proposed adjoining to ring road joining Kadur Road and Belur Road which is also included in the transportation area.   

 

The city has the tendency to grow along the Belur road and Mallandur Road and it is proposed to bring the city under the same system with grid-iron pattern of road network. Many new major and minor roads have been proposed in the plan. For some of the existing important, but narrow roads, road widen­ing has been insisted depending upon the importance of the roads. The details of various proposals are des­cribed below.

 

a) Ring Road

Major portion of the city lies towards the Kadur – Mangalore State Highway and the traffic in this State Highway is increased considerably.   So a ring road of 45 m wide is proposed in the Master plan starting from Kadur road and touching the Belur road towards the southern side of the city.  

 

One more ring road starting adjacent to Amber valley residential school passing our Amble industrial estate and joining the Belur road going towards Hassan. This proposal was done by using total station survey by the Pwd department and the proposal has been sent to the govt for the approval.

 

And also a new ring road has been proposed from Tarikere –Billikere state highway after Allampura village and joining Kadur road which is also a State highway.

 

Hence the ring road connects the two major state high ways which shall make the traffic flow easier without passing the city traffic.

 

b) Major Roads

The major roads in the city can be categorized in two groups (a) Roads running east-west direction (b) Roads running north-south direction.

 

The most important roads serving the city are Kadur-Mangalore State highway (SH-17) and Tarikere – Billikere road and the existing width of this road varies from   15 m to 30 m. So the proposed width of this road has been fixed for 30.00m.

 

Other than State Highway the other important roads are Mallandur road which is a Major district road touches the I.G road i.e. the state highway. Mallandur road is proposed to 24 m width. Some of the other important roads are Hirekolale road, By-pass road, Basavanahalli main road, Vijaya pura main road which runs perpendicular to the state highway.

 

  Along with the proposed widening of different roads building lines have been     proposed for all important roads.   A statement showing the proposed width and        proposed building lines for all important roads have been appended to this report vide table No. 8.

           

c) Road Widening And Building Lines

As already stated the existing road network need to be improved. Measures to widen some of the roads are not possible in view of the fact that first class buildings have already come up, and proposals to widen in these stretches have been opposed. Hence, proposals are con­tinued to insist building lines in some of the stretches. These building lines shall be applicable to only to new buildings which are proposed by totally demolishing the existing buildings and do not apply to extensions to existing buildings subject to other provisions of the zonal and sub-division regulations A statement showing the proposed building lines along various stretches is appended to the zoning regulations.

 

9.8: UTILITIES AND SERVICES

 

   a) Underground Drainage         

Only 20% of the whole Chikmagalur city has an underground drainage system some old part of the city and old layouts are provided with UGD facilities. Because of narrow roads in almost all part of the city the UGD lines runs along the center line of the road which may cause problems for the maintenance in future. The existing sewage treatment plant is located in southern part and which is necessary to be shifted to a new place for the population for 2021.  

 

Hence KWSSB has proposed a new sewage treatment plant towards southern portion in between the railway line and state highway. Seeing the Topography of chikmagalur city the slope is towards the southern side so the sewage treatment plant has been proposed towards south and wet wells has been proposed in Hiremagalur and Karkipete.

 

 

 

 

 

   d) Solid Waste Management

For management and disposal of solid waste in the city Chikmagalur municipality has        selected and allotted 35Acres of land survey No.33 of Indavara village. This land is   at a distance of 11 km from Chikmagalur city.

 

 

9.9: BUS STAND

 

A bus stand for the private busses has been proposed adjoining to Mallandur road and a KSRTC bus stand has been proposed adjoining to Belur road.

 

     

9.9.1: PROPOSED LAND USE DETAILS OF OTHER VILLAGES

 

 The villages such as Allampur, Beekanahalli, Hampapura, Iyanahalli, Indavara,      Nallur, and Tegur, lie within the limits of local planning area but outside the municipality limit. Hence a survey was conducted of all the said villages to study the various uses for which the land is being utilized. The proposed land-use analysis of all the villages is as follows.
