Due to lack of resettlement space in apartment blocks, the Hanoi Department of Planning and Architecture proposed a check of existing projects and 167 hectares in resettlement areas.
Hanoi in desperate need of resettlement areas
According to this department’s assessment, most projects approved by the Hanoi People’s Committee and the department are going at a too slow pace, unable to keep up with site clearance.
Each urban area has been required to use 20% of its land to build resettlement apartments, however, investors do not hand over the land to authorities in time for such the apartments to be built.
To address the issue, the department has recommended adding seven new resettlement areas equipped with adequate infrastructure to meet the demands of relocated people.
The department suggested three areas in Hoai Duc District. The first 42-hectare resettlement area, called X1, has 41 hectares in Viwasen Urban Area and one hectare in Duc Giang Urban Area.
The second 42-hectare area, called X2, has one hectare in Tay Do Urban Area, 33 hectares in Son Dong Urban Area, and 8 hectares scattered in residential areas.
X3 has a total area of 35 hectares with 8 hectares in Son Dong Urban Area and 27 hectares scattered throughout residential areas.
19-hectare X4 is in Dong Anh District. 6-hectare X5 lies in Dan Phuong District’s Lien Ha Commune. 4-hectare X6 is located in Dan Phuong District’s Tan Hoi Commune. 19-hectare X7 is in Chuong My District’s Chuc Son Town.
All these resettlement areas are cultivated land, but they will be converted to resettlement land in accordance with the capital planning.
The Department proposed Hanoi People’s Committee that the Department of Construction should co-operate with relevant agencies to check the progress of these approved projects.
Also, the projects are to be based on resettlement statistics and projected demands through 2020.
People’s Committee at all levels need to check and find out wastelands scattering in residential areas to take advantage of.
The Department of Planning and Investment and the Department of Construction have been assigned to check for possible difficulties in the process of investment and construction, in order to make a proposal to the municipal People’s Committee. Afterwards, these agencies will come up with solutions that would speed up the process of the construction of resettlement locations.
