After C&D plant protests, Nashik to create green buffer zone

After local residents protested over the proposed construction and demolition (C&D) waste recycling plant in the Makhmalabad area, fearing that it would cause air pollution, the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has decided to create a green buffer zone at a cost of Rs 1.5 crore to protect the area from dust.

The Nashik civic body also will plant more than 3,000 saplings on around 70 acres of the area proposed for the C&D waste plant, which is to be built at the cost of Rs 70 million. The funds for the green zone will be made available under National Clean Air Programme (N-CAP).

The officials further said that the civic body has received total funds of Rs 420 million under the N-CAP for the implementation of various projects to reduce air pollution in the city. Of this, Rs 30 million has been allocated for three projects, including Rs 15 million for creating the green buffer zone at the proposed C&D waste plant site.

Moreover, NMC also proposes to develop a new garden near Gangapur village on the road towards Vasant Kanetkar Garden for Rs 10 million. The garden will be developed on 3 acres owned by the civic body.

The NMC administration is also planning to develop some traffic islands in the city at a total cost of Rs 5 million.
