The very basic function of Local Planning Authorities under the provisions of Town and Country Planning Act is to carry out surveys on the existing land and buildings in the respective Planning Areas. Based on the Land and building survey, Existing Land use and Proposed land uses for a target year has to be prepared. These two basic maps are incorporated in the development plans such as Master Plan and Detailed Development Plan etc.,.
The Master plan and Detailed development plans are the blue books for the Planning
Authorities using which they regulate the physical development of the town and its environs comprised in the
Planning Areas. By well thought out strategy, current deficiencies in infrastructure and amenities are to be quantified and requirements for the future to be be projected. While suggesting solutions to meet the current deficiencies, new project proposals and schemes are to be formulated to provide infrastructure and amenities for the future population. Planning Authorities are hence statutorily bound to prepare such development reports and make sincere efforts to implement the development plans by properly phasing the implementation of projects and schemes proposed identified. Mobilising resources for implementation of the development plans is yet an important function of the planning authorities. And more importantly, enforcement of development control rules and Act provisions and to see that the physical developments in
their jurisdiction is authorised, the development are in order and all congenial to the
peaceful living of the people of the area is the responsibility rested with the planning authorities. Tiruppur Local Planning Authority is cognizant of its obligatory and statutory functions and is living
up to the expectations.
Generally the development of any town is mostly confined within the town boundary itself and as such the municipality concerned could address the issues of physical developments with the body like Single Local Planning Authority (SLPA) constituted for the town to carry out the planning functions. However, in case of major cities, where physical developments reach out to places beyond the boundaries of said municipal cities or Corporations then, to control the development beyond the defined
jurisdictions of said Municipal towns or Corporations is
cumbersome and bring jurisdictional conflicts as well, as the adjoining areas may be comprised in Town Panchayats or Village Panchayats. Such major cities combined with their adjoining areas of
influence are identified and declared as Composite Local Planning Areas. And accordingly physical planning, and regulation of developments is entrusted with the Composite Local Planning Authorities constituted under the Town and Country Planning Act.. Tiruppur is one such major city having potential to develop within and to influence the growth of adjoining towns and villages to a sizable depth. As such the Tiruppur Local Planning Authority as a Planning and Regulatory Authority is having many a challenges. The defined activities and functions in the form of programmes, projects and schemes
emanated from the proviso of Tamil Nadu Town and Country Planning Act help meet the challenges democratically and judiciously.
