As regards the master plan for the city, a number of meetings had earlier been conducted to consider proposals from all parties involved. For this purpose, the responsibility for the appointment of a project consultant was assumed by the 10-member team, led by Chief Metropolitan Planner Syed Nadeem Akhtar Zaidi.

Moreover, its choice to create a technology area on 118 Kanal land of Kot Lakhpat region was also finalised by the governing body. In cooperation with the Punjab Information and Technology Board (PITB), this proposed facility will be created.

The ruling authority of the LDA intends to rent LDA real estate from 1 to 10 years and to enter into all contracts through an open bid system. The contracts collect advance rents from tenants with a ten per cent rise in lease charges each year. Under these contracts.

In addition, it would be authorized to allocate spaces for graveyard areas for the city administration. Similarly, developers will be needed to receive a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the administration of the district mosques involved for a plot distribution for mosque buildings.
