LDA is introduce a Sustainable Growth Model in 3 Housing Schemes

This initiative aims to promote environmentally friendly practices and ensure long-term development. The LDA’s decision to implement this model reflects its commitment to creating sustainable and livable communities. By incorporating eco-friendly features and adopting green technologies, these housing schemes will contribute to a more sustainable future. This move by the LDA is a significant step towards achieving a greener and more environmentally-conscious society.

The Lahore Development Authority (LDA) plans to implement a sustainable growth model in three prominent housing schemes and a few Katchi Abadis. The aim is to create a healthy, eco-friendly, and livable environment.

Before Eidul Fitr, the highest level of LDA administration presented a recent proposal at a high-level meeting presided over by Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz. According to sources, the Chief Minister accepted and praised the proposal, granting the LDA permission to implement the model as soon as possible, as reported by Dawn.

In a recent development, specific large-scale housing projects and selected Karchi Abadis are set to transform. These areas will soon feature dedicated bicycle lanes, solar-powered street lights, designated vending/rehri points, central recreational areas, pedestrian walkways, and rainwater harvesting systems.

A new pilot project is set to begin at the LDA Avenue-1 Housing Scheme (Raiwind Road), with a budget of Rs170m. The anticipated duration for the project’s completion is three months. Johar Town is set to become the pioneer in introducing a new housing scheme model within the next six months. The estimated cost of the project in Johar Town is Rs1.7bn.

In a move mirroring the development in Johar Town, the authorities are set to implement a similar model in Allama Iqbal Town. A staggering amount of Rs1.1bn has been projected to be allocated for this project, with a timeframe of six months for its completion. Gulberg is set to implement this project within a one-year timeframe, with an estimated expenditure of Rs3bn in the area.

Gulberg residents can expect a new project on MM-Alam Road in the next four months, with an estimated cost of Rs600m. Lahore is undergoing a major transformation as part of a long-term plan to make it a more livable city. The project, which spans over a decade, aims to improve the overall quality of life for its residents.

Several Katchi Abadis have been identified as potential locations for the upcoming model launch, which is expected to take place within the next six months. A budget of Rs100m has been allocated for this project.

LDA Director General Tahir Farooq spoke to Dawn about Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz’s vision for Lahore. She aims to transform the city into a unique and sustainable place, where residents can enjoy a long and healthy life.
