Introduction

The Government of Andhra Pradesh (GoAP) has decided to establish a Greenfield capital city
for the new state near to the cities of Vijayawada and Guntur in an area of about 30,000
Acres. It is also decided to notify a large region 1 surrounding the capital, including 5-6
municipalities and several villages, as a metropolitan development region. The GoAP
proposes to develop the capital and the population nodes within the region as a compact
transit-oriented, environment friendly and densely populated serene clusters by enabling
technology and effective governance.
The vision is to create a vibrant, diverse, inclusive, and modern city which is not only a
glowing pride for all the people of Andhra Pradesh but also a magnet for skilled migrants
from across the world. It would synthesize the best features of urban planning, sustainability,
and effective governance to create an inclusive, highly liveable, and world-class urban ecosystem.
The construction of a new capital city is not merely an exercise in building physical
infrastructure. It involves the creation of a concept plan and design that is not only modern,
environmentally sustainable, and functionally efficient, thereby endowed with a high-degree
of liveability quotient, but also resonates with the local environment, history and culture,
thereby creating a deep sense of attachment and ownership among its primary stakeholders.
It also involves the development of a socio-economic plan that explores the economic
activities that are most likely in the specific context to generate rapid and sustainable
economic growth and the social policies that are necessary to ensure inclusive development.
While the GoAP develops the capital city, it is also keen to ensure that the development of
the region happens in a planned manner. Accordingly, it wants to establish excellent
transportation connectivity between the population nodes within the region. It will use the
metropolitan Master Plan and rigorous enforcement of zoning regulations to prevent the
haphazard sprawl-type urban growth at these nodes.
It proposes to conduct a Master Plan competition, inviting globally reputed urban master plan
designers/ Planners/ Architects, to develop the spatial concept master plan for the capital city
and the metropolitan region. It is expected that the spatial concept Master Plan along with the
Special Development Control Regulations/ Zoning Regulations for the city and the region
will be ready in 9-12 months.
The GoAP invites transparent global competitive bids to identify a Project Advisory and
Management Consultant (PAMC) for the capital city Project. The Consultant will have to
deliver on a set of processes as well as technical outputs. The former would include typical

The proposed region would be slightly bigger than the current urban development authority (VGTM UDA)
area.

project management and transaction advisory services, especially in the selection of a


Concept Master Planner/ Designer/ Architect through a design competition and a
communications strategy advisor firm. The latter would include the development of a
comprehensive 10-year Project Development Map and a socio-economic master plan for the
city.

Project Development Map

The planning of cities is a complex process, demanding careful analysis of all influencing
factors, their direct and indirect impacts, prioritizing among them, and allowing the flexibility
to accommodate future demands and requirements, into an inclusive and sustainable spatial
structure.
This process should be underpinned by a set of Considerations that are required to develop a
capital city that meets the desired objectives. The translation of each of these Considerations
into action Outcomes would require following clearly defined set of Processes. Many of
these Processes would involve the City Government officials working in close engagement
with Professional Experts hired from outside. The deliverables of the Consultant should

levels of satisfaction with the work of the Consultant or the cost of having the same

The objective is that the Consultant will be slowly phased out and this core team of
officials should take over the responsibility of managing the CCDP and beyond.
