Government cuts non-development zone around Thane Creek Flamingo Sanctuary, Real Estate News, ET RealEstate
MUMBAI: The Union ministry of environment and forests on Tuesday accepted the state government’s recommendation to reduce the 10km buffer zone from the boundary of the eco-sensitive Thane Creek Flamingo Sanctuary to 3.89km.

This comes as a major relief to builders in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region as hundreds of construction projects would have been affected by the no-development rule.

“We are happy to inform you that the flamingo buffer zone is approved with small exclusions as recommended by the state in the meeting,’’ said CREDAI-MCHI, which represents developers.

Its president Deepak Goradia told TOI that the ministry on Tuesday agreed to reduce the buffer zone and that the official notification will be issued by the ministry later.

On July 31, TOI had reported that projects in as many as 15 wards in Greater Mumbai would have been affected because of the 10-km buffer zone.
