Hi All!
I am reviewing my city area Master Plan. I would like to ask specifically, your reactions to building height restrictions around sensitive structures, zones etc.

Here are a few such:

1. Offical Residence of the Governor of the State. ( Both for Urban Design and Security related issues)
2. Heritage Structures, Zones/precincts.(for conservation and urban design related issues)
3. Defence related or similar sensitive research related areas, zones, structures.( for security related issues)

I am for such a restriction ranging from 250m to 500m( radius) depending on the ground conditions and local spatio-economic factors.

What are your views?
