Annexure - 2 Terms of Reference (TOR) for the Preparation of Concept Plan for MMR
1. Context and guiding principles The concept plan for the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) is to be a plan integrating the various towns and cities within the metropolitan boundaries, with a particular focus on Greater Mumbai, to promote balanced development of the region. It is conceived as a plan that will optimize distribution of economic activities and housing in conjunction with transport infrastructure through 2052 with two phases viz. Phase -I up to 2032, and Phase 窶的I up to 2052. 窶｢
The Mumbai Metropolitan Region The Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) extends over an area of 4,355 sq. km. and comprises Municipal Corporations of Greater Mumbai, Thane, Kalyan-Dombivli, Navi Mumbai, Mira Bhayander, Bhiwandi-Nizampur and Ulhasnagar, 13 municipal towns, 7 non-municipal urban centres, and 995 villages. Its administrative limits cover Mumbai city and Mumbai suburban districts, and parts of Thane and Raigad District. Tehsils / districts in MMR
Mumbai’s peculiar geography - a narrow wedge-shaped land surrounded by water bodies on three sides - has for decades dictated its spatial growth. While the early growth of Mumbai occurred in the south of the region near the port, it spread northwards along the suburban rail corridors. Till the 1960s, most of the region’s urban growth was confined to Greater Mumbai’s municipal limits. Since then, expansion has extended to Thane, Kalyan, and other areas beyond Greater Mumbai. The region is expected to see continued population expansion and employment, with the population of MMR expected to reach 34 million by 2031 with a supporting employment of 15 million. It is in this context that the Maharashtra government has set up a Steering Committee to guide the creation of a Concept Plan for MMR that allows the city’s stakeholders to make short- and long- term choices that will allow the city to become a world-class city. The process of preparing the Concept Plan should be guided by two key principles: • Comprehensive planning Planning in the region must examine all interrelated factors impacting the development of the region, including economic and demographic drivers, physical infrastructure, affordable housing, integration of all modes of transportation including walking and cycling, social amenities for all income groups, open spaces, heritage values, environmental conservation, land, and spatial structures. • Inclusive planning Key to success in the planning and maintenance of the city is the active participation of its citizens. The Concept Plan should, therefore, incorporate the views, opinions, and needs of citizens, and the planning process should throughout involve the active participation of citizens and other stakeholders. The Concept Plan should also adequately address the concerns of all sections of the Society. 2. Scope of the Concept Plan The concept plan is envisaged to guide MMR’s development through the year 2032 and 2052, with a particular focus on Greater Mumbai, and to help understand the economic and social choices that will allow creating a region that remains dynamic and fosters economic growth and social inclusiveness. In this regard, the plan needs to focus on six key areas: •
Physical visualization of the region, that combines identified economic centers with the set of critical public infrastructure and social services that accompany them
Proposal for identifying and sequencing the key public investments needed to achieve the visualized region
Recommendations on redevelopment models for high density environments that are applicable to Greater Mumbai and similar locations in the rest of MMR
Integrated land use and transportation plan, and
Proposals on the over arching urban form and design that will guide the region’s development along with details of one or more areas having distinct characteristics.
Climate change, its mitigation and adaptation.
3. Planning objectives The concept plan for MMR must also address the following key objectives: • Ensuring economic vibrancy and sustainability A clear understanding and characterization of the ongoing economic proposition of the region should influence the plan. It should ensure that the region maintains its preeminent position as the economic heart of the country, and that the necessary physical and social enablers are in place to ensure continued employment and income growth. • Ensuring a slum free region with access to affordable housing for all Approximately 45 % of the region’s population, or 9 million people, live in slums. Further, around 2 million live in rent-controlled dilapidated buildings and unsafe houses in Mumbai. At current prices, a majority of the region’s population cannot afford formal housing. Thus, affordable housing should be a key component of the proposal and the plan should promote policies to ensure the availability of affordable housing in the region. The plan should also develop ideas relating to slum redevelopment. • Creating an integrated region wide transportation system The plan should generate an integrated transportation system that facilitates the appropriate mix of transportation modes that includes local trains, metro, monorail, BRTS, vehicles, cycles, and walking. The use of pedestrian spaces should be encouraged, particularly in wards, and efforts should be made to ensure the optimal usage of non-motorized private transportation to reduce pollution, consumption of fossil fuels and congestion. Adequate parking facilities should also be adequately addressed in the plan. The transportation network should be affordable and the mix of modes should ensure access for citizens from all geographic areas and income groups. Governing principles for such a model would be a maximum travel time of one hour from any one point to another, and that the nearest model of regional transport should be within a walking distance of ten minutes. • Ensuring access to quality social amenities While the number of schools, colleges, hospitals, and recreational clubs in the region has increased, access is limited due to affordability. Affordable, high-quality social amenities are needed to support citizens of varying income levels and are an essential part of Mumbai’s transformation into a world class city. The plan should ensure mechanisms to create social amenities across the city and region, including access to basic social amenities within a reasonable distance for every citizen. • Expanding open spaces and waterfronts The ratio of open space in Greater Mumbai is a meager 1.1 sq. m per person as compared to 31.68 sq. m in London, 26.4 sq. m in New York, 17.6 sq. m in Chicago and 3.96 sq. m in Tokyo. Open spaces are a reflection of the dignity of public life in a city and there is an urgent need to expand public space that is accessible to all income groups while preserving and improving the current set of open spaces. Leisure and recreation opportunities for all should be factored in the plan. The plan should identify mechanisms to improve the availability of open spaces, especially taking into account the high density population characteristic of the region. The concept plan should also identify initiatives to develop the waterfronts of the regions as public spaces.
• Developing urban design and form Aesthetics is a crucial component of a world-class city. The plan should have clear guidelines on urban design including addressing such areas as avenues and pedestrianisation plans, both within existing built forms as well as in new land usage. A strategy for acquiring vacant lands should also be developed. • Facilitating environmental sustainability The changing climate and environmental concerns should be significant considerations in attempts to create a sustainable, ecofriendly region. A key asset of the region is its long, undulating coastline. Rivers, ponds, mangroves, mud-flats, creeks, saltpans, hills and forests are suffering from degradation and the plan should ensure the sensitive development and conservation of these natural assets. • Preservation of historical and heritage assets The concept plan should actively identify ways to ensure the preservation of the characteristics of the region’s long and rich history. The protection of heritage assets such as physical properties and social communities like kolis should be included in the plan. • Financing of projects The plan should identify strategy for financing the on- going and proposed projects as well as guidelines for its implementation. 4. Duration of the Study and Deliverables The study shall be completed within a period of 52 weeks from the date of signing the Agreement incorporating all the aspects mentioned in Clause 2 above. The deliverables and completion time for various stages would be as given hereinafter:
