Afghan government prepares master plan for Bamyan city

BamyanAfghan Urban Development Minister Hassan Abdulhai said a master plan for the development of Bamyan city had been prepared and ready for execution.

The plan is aimed at securing Bamyan’s cultural heritage and covers about 4,000 hectares of land.

Minister Abdulhai said no one would be allowed to construct buildings near historical sites and those already erected would be demolished as per the master plan.

Thousands of unplanned or illegal houses have been set up on hilltops, which would be torn down after negotiations with their owners. According to the Minister, the owners would be provided new houses.

The master plan would be complete in the next 15 years and would turn Bamyan City into a modern and developed town.

Meanwhile, Governor Habiba Sarabi pledged her administration would leave no stone unturned in making the plan a success.
