European Investment Bank | Published April 7, 2012 - Deadline May 25, 2012
The Government of Mauritius has embarked on diversifying the country's economy in order to foster economic and social development. In this regard, an area of some 400 ha directly adjacent to the country's airport has been converted from agricultural land to non-agricultural purposes to be zoned for mixed-use urban development. The TA assignment will produce a comprehensive mixed-use long-term urban development Master Plan for this site which can be implemented in specified phases and which will serve as proposal to the competent authorities for the future long-term development of the site.
The Master Plan has to comprise the following elements: i) a long-term development vision; ii) technical review of constraints; iii) infrastructure plan; iv) urban design proposal; v) environmental impact assessment. The long-term strategic Master Plan should present a proposal for the relevant planning authorities, private and public stakeholders delivering facilities and services to prepare and schedule investments and activities.
