Quetta master plan

Quetta master plan

Keeping in view the rapid and unplanned growth of Quetta City, Quetta Development Authority
under took the preparation of Quetta Master Plan through NESPAK in 1985, on the direction of
Government of Balochistan for Quetta City to guide its present as well as future growth in
scientific and planned manner.

The Project is divided into the following three components:
i. Urban Planning
ii. Project Preparation
iii. Action Studies
Urban Planning: In the Urban planning context, future growth, form and direction of the
City has been visualized up to the year 2008. Major zoning and land uses have been identified
and recommendations made for housing, education, medical care and public utilities etc.
Action Studies: In the action studies, recommendations have been made for beautification
of Chaman Road, Zarghoon Road and Sariab Road and detailed plans have been prepared.
Outdated building bylaws and zoning regulations have also been revised. Quetta being within the
seismic zone, a study was conducted to identify high risk and very high risk zones so that
different types of buildings could be planned and designed accordingly. Included in the study
are recommendations to enforce seismic code through legislation to minimize the loss of human
life and property.
Recommendations have also been made for strengthening the functions of QDA through
necessary amendments in the current Ordinance.
It is the fervent desire of the Government of Balochistan to implement the recommended projects
so that Quetta could be restored to its original character and transform into a physically more
comfortable, functional and aesthetically appealing City.
