While extending a stay on the implementation of the Lahore Master Plan 2050, the LHC has also ordered the LDA to appoint a point person for the task. Justice Shahid Karim issued the orders while presiding over a petition lodged by Abdul Rehman and others to challenge the Lahore Master Plan 2050.
According to their sources, the petitioners believe that Lahore’s agricultural land has been improperly converted into urban areas. If the plan is implemented, according to the petitioners, several thousand trees will be cut down, further degrading the city’s environment.
