The proposed Cox's Bazar Development Authority Bill 2015 will be placed in the upcoming session of parliament, according to a top government official.
"We will press the draft Cox's Bazar Development Authority Bill 2015 for passage in the next session of parliament, as it is urgent for the development of the coastal town," Housing and Public Works secretary Mohammad Moinuddin Abdullah told a workshop on Sunday.
Urban Development Directorate (UDD) and UN-Habitat jointly organized the workshop on 'Mainstreaming Climate Change Concerns into National Urban related Policies' at the conference room of the Public Works Department in the capital on Sunday.
On July 6 last, the cabinet gave the final approval to the draft Cox's Bazar Development Authority Bill 2015 in a bid to ensure development of the tourist city under a master plan that includes  zoning and regulation of ongoing rampant construction.
The draft bill proposes constituting an authority like Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha (Rajuk), Chittagong Development Authority or Rajshahi Development Authority to ensure planned development in Cox's Bazar.     ?UNB
