GURGAON: In a move that hopes to boost security within plotted colonies, the department of town and country planning (DTCP) has come up with a detailed guideline for installation of additional gates in Gurgaon and other areas.

In the past, granting permission for such gates in plotted colonies had been a tricky issue since gates were only allowed as per the colony layout plan, which had no provisions for additional gates.

The policy guidelines for granting permission to erect security gates in the licenced colonies in the state were issued on January 23.

“Residents Welfare Associations (RWAs) of licenced colonies are approaching us seeking permission to construct gates on roads leading to their colony. Though such roads are public roads, where access to the public cannot be denied, safety concerns and security of the residents, especially at night, have to be addressed,” said a senior DTCP official.

Following the guidelines, the official said, the RWAs now can approach the committee in Gurgaon under the deputy commissioner to put up new gates. The committee has the deputy commissioner, the area DCP and the senior town planner on board to look into applications.

The official said the application should have complete details, such as the location of additional gates (other than which is approved in layout/zoning plan of the colony), the effect of such gates on the movement of traffic in the colony or sector, as well as on free access to the community infrastructure located in the area. The specification of the gates and its opening and closing times must also be included.

In private colonies, the developers will consult the elected RWA and after inviting objections from residents, applications would be routed to the district town planner. The application will then be put up for discussion under the committee headed by the deputy commissioner.

The objective is to provide security to the residents without hampering inter-colony and intra-colony movement. Therefore, no gate shall be allowed on sector-dividing roads and a 24m wide internal circulation road of the sector, said the official.
