VUDA plans a massive satellite township program spanning 900 acres in the suburbs of Visakhapatnam.
In one of the most ambitious projects yet, VUDA, Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority is planning the development of a satellite township over 900 acres of land in Lankalepalem. This is towards the outskirts of the city. The 900-acre land piece is located at the intersection of five villages of three mandals in the district. These include Aganampudi in Gajuwaka mandal, Nanginarapadu and Gangavaram in Sabbavaram mandal and Pedamushidivada and East Marripalem in Parawada mandal.
A satellite township is a plan which has been in the planning stage till long and after much deliberation is finally making headway. The satellite township is also expected to have a sports complex over a 150 acre area. The houses in the township will be kept in the reasonable budget limits with stress on affordability. VUDA is already ahead with land surveys and a team of tehsildars has concluded it recently.
As per Times of India – “Vuda is planning to go for the auction/lottery of plots in a 55-acre land in Cherlopallikhandam near Anakapalle. The layout was first proposed in 2010 under the land pooling scheme and so far, the land owners parted with an extent of about 40 acres and registered their lands in favour of Vuda. However, another 12 acres of land is not registered in the names of the ryots/land owners in the WebLand (a web-based land records management system of the government of Andhra Pradesh), who gave consent to give their land to the Vuda for development of this satellite township. Vuda now wants to sort out all these issues before fully developing the layout and proceed with the auction of plots.”
