Panaji’s ODP for 2031 will get GIS-based zoning plan
The government of Goa has invited a request for proposal from empanelled consultants to prepare a geographical information system (GIS)-based zoning plan for the outline development plan (ODP), 2031, of Panaji.
The North Goa Planning and Development Authority has already prepared the draft ODP for the area, which has been approved by the government.
The consultant will prepare a GIS database of the planning area based on the draft ODP, which will consist of base map layers, existing land use, and relevant data from stakeholder departments.
The ODP is a long-term planning document that guides future growth and development and provides a conceptual layout that connects buildings, social settings, and their surrounding environments.
The consultant is also expected to analyse the primary and secondary data of various sectors, including socio-economic, physical, and environmental aspects, and formulate the final ODP in line with the Goa, Daman, and Diu Town and Country Planning Act, 1974.
