Vision of Sohna Master Plan 2021
The main Sohna town is bounded by Aravali ranges on the west, a bundh and partly low lying pockets of land on the north, bye-pass to Gurugram-Sohna-Alwar road on the east, and forest land on the south. Due to topographical conditions of the area around Sohna, the suitable land for the development lies in the north-east, east and south-east of existing Sohna town. The existing bye pass is highly congested and obstructs the smooth flow of the traffic. However, a new bye pass/ outer ring road are proposed to expand the town eastern side of the existing bye pass. Requirement of land for the various major land uses for an additional population of approximate 168000 by 2021 AD has been worked out. The draft development plan Sohna 2021 AD or Sohna Master Plan 2021 has been prepared for a population of 168000 persons.
Objective of Sohna Master Plan 2021
To accommodate an additional projected population of 168000 persons an area of 680.00 hectare has been proposed for the development of residential sectors under Sohna Master Plan 2021. The residential density proposed is 250 persons per hectare which is quite reasonable. The additional residential use has been proposed in the east of town between the existing and proposed bye-passes. The main commercial business is being done in the narrow streets/ bazaars of the existing town. Another potential area for this purpose which is on the present bye-pass has been proposed for commercial activity. An area of 135.00 hectares has been proposed for commercial use in sector- 2, 3 and 9, and a commercial pocket existing in industrial sector 15 and 16 was planned by Haryana Urban Development Authority to cater the need of commercial activities of this sector.
