Hosur New Town Development Authority (HNTDA)
Our State has the unique position, since this is the only state which enacted a Town Planning Act as early in the year 1920, viz. Madras Town Planning Act of 1920 and had established a full-fledged department for Town Planning during the British Rule well before the independence. Later this was followed by all the States and formulated Town Planning Legislations and established separate departments for Town and Country Planning. The Act of 1920 had a limited area of preparing detailed Town Planning Scheme within Municipal areas for smaller extents only and these has been mainly prepared for guiding the developments within the town limits. In the long run and after the modern developments, this Act has to be modified giving come for modern trends and needs in Town and Country Planning. The outcome of this process is the enactment of the Tamilnadu Town and Country Planning Act, 1971. This new Act brought in larger concepts like Regional Plans, NTD Plan, Detailed Development Plans, New Town Development Plans and Metropolitan plans etc., and constitution of various planning authorities namely Regional Planning Authority, Local Planning Authority and Metropolitan Development Authorities such a legislation has a commendable effect on 29.11.72 process covering the entire area, namely both urban and rural areas within the State.
Under this Act, Hosur New Town Development Authority was constituted with notification of Development Area Authority Plan and the Development Control Rules therefore.
