Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority :-
Prior to VUDA, the Town Planning Trust (TPT) has existed since 1962, to implement developmental activities in and around Visakhapatnam. The TPT was upgraded and Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority was constituted on 17th June 1978, under AP Urban Areas (Development) Act, 1975 with its jurisdiction extending over Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation and four municipal towns namely Vizianagaram, Bheemunipatnam, Gajuwaka and Anakapalli including 287 villages in 178 Gram Panchayats, comprising an area of 1721 sq.km. Its function was
  1. To regulate and enforce the development as per the plans
  2. To formulate and implement projects for housing infrastructure and
  3. To coordinate various developmental projects for implementation of the Master Plan proposals
It replaced erstwhile Town Planning Trust, a similar body constituted in 1962, which was operating in a limited area of Visakhapatnam municipal area. VUDA, as part of its specified objectives, prepared a Master Plan for the entire Visakhapatnam Metropolitan Region (VMR) and done the Government of Andhra Pradesh approve it. The zonal development plans of Vizianagaram, Bheemunipatnam, Gajuwaka and Anakapalli towns have been sanctioned. In the peripheral area zonal development plans of Madhurawada, Rushikonda and Gopalapatnam have been sanctioned. VUDA also has the responsibility of coordinating and implementing important Urban Development Plans.
