The aim of this exercise is to support 96 Urban Local Bodies of Madhya Pradesh in preparing the City Development Plan (CDP) for their respective cities. The CDP should provide a comprehensive medium term strategy (Vision 2035) as well as a City Investment Plan (CIP), based on which the concerned ULB will be able to access funds under GoI/GoMP schemes as well as from own and other sources based on priority actions and projects identified in the CDP. The document should also provide Financial Operating Plan (FOP) to direct the ULBs for mobilising various financial resources to implement the identified projects.
The City development Plan must adhere with the JNNURM’s CDP preparation toolkit. The inadmissible components under JNNURM should also be included in the task. The CDP should also include Broad Master planning of the town (using GIS) and should be prepared keeping in view the Master Plan (wherever exists) provisions as prepared by Town and Country Planning Department. It is also expected that the CDP would provide Urban Reform Action Plan for the ULBs as envisaged under JNNURM.
Preparation of the CDP will consist of city development strategies that come out of a structured consultative process. The process will enable elected representatives, key staff of MC departments, parastatal agencies and other institutions, policy makers and the citizens to participate and plan for spatial, social and economic development of the concern cities. A City Development Plan (CDP) will present both a vision of a desired future perspective for the city and the ULB’s strategic framework of sectoral plans translated into actions that define on how the ULB, together with other stakeholders, intends to work towards achieving their long-term vision in the next five years.
