Environmentalists raise concerns over Biodiversity Park at Noida sector 92

Noida : Some of Noida residents were gathered to raise issues concerning alleged cutting of trees from area at sector 91. The residents alleged that as per the Noida Master Plan 2021 75 acre of land in sector 91 is classified as a City Forest area but the same has been changed now.

Environment Conservationist Vikrant Tongad said that “Now making changes in it as per the new Master Plan of 2031, Noida Authority has proposed a recreational Park and Playground which will have food stalls, amphitheaters and other concrete structures. As per NGT orders in any park more 5% of concrete can’t be used”

However the Noida authority stated “the existing 75 acre land will be developed as Noida Biodiversity Park as proposed in the Master Plan 2031”

On allegation of cutting down existing Eucalyptus trees at the site “These were planted 30 years ago and now they had completed their life span. So now those trees had started falling on its own and many of them had shaded leaves, living larger barren patches.”

The proposed Biodiversity Park will have over 120 species of shrubs, herbs and other plants. It will play an important role in imparting Nature Education particularly to school and college students apart from Ecological researchers and nature lovers.

The vegetation for this diversity park is also been selected as suitable soil type and climate of Delhi NCR region.

Only multilevel car parking at Noida Sector 18 be allowed to park cars @noida_authority

Rajiv Goyal

In my opinion, lighting of each area in sector 18 need to go under study for 300 lux level and implemented the same.

Also movement of cars must be completely stopped within sectors and only multilevel car parking be allowed to park cars. Movement within market can be on battery run rickshaw.

There must already be camera, but central monitoring by better quality camera will instill confidence in people visiting area for security

Toilets need to be developed at 10 places

Wave must be pressurised to complete the project so that entire area is put to use in better way

In addition to this , such areas should also be developed at 6-7 locations in entire noida city like sector 7x, 135, around 126, around 150, around sector 62

Eucalyptus trees are being cut in Noida – An appeal from NOFAA @noida_authority

Rajiva Singh

President NOFAA

The trees which have been instructed to be cut down for creating a park in Sector 91 by Noida authority ,are all Eucalyptus trees.* Their plantation has long been restricted due its inherent nature of absorbing high levels of ground water , which are sometimes not good for neighbouring plantations . It also depletes the ground water levels, where ever planted

In case any thing other than Eucalyptus trees are being uprooted , *please let us know so that immediate flag can be raised .*

Had a quick discussions with Noida authority official’s and a clear understanding is given that *only Eucalyptus trees are being cut.* We dont have any reasons not to believe them or to stop them from doing so.

*Moreover , equal or more number of trees are being planned to be planted in next couple of weeks in which public participation would be encouraged by authority.*

In case we still have doubts , we can meet the authority officals and get more clarity on the same .
