The development plan studio was divided into two parts. The first part was to understand the statutory framework and development plan of our own city. Following that, a comprehensive analysis of Surat was conducted to develop an appropriate Development Plan for the horizon year 2041. Surat is the 2nd largest city of Gujarat after Ahmedabad and the 8th most populous city in the country, located near the sea making it the nearest port to Ahmedabad and Nagpur. The new development plan aims to re-envision Surat as both economically and environmentally sustainable, with better liberal land-use zoning promoted by a market-driven approach and a stronger transportation network to support the development.
