Commercial zoning permit granted to TCDD land for Haydarpaşa Train Station and Port Transformation Project was canceled
Metropolitan Municipality Council, Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications said, “There is a tube gate. The building cannot be constructed. ”It canceled the commercial zoning permit given to the TCDD land for Haydarpaşa Station and Port Transformation Project. The plots have been processed into the zoning plan as green areas. It is noted that Haydarpaşa Port can be built without TCDD land.
While the development plans for the Haydarpaşa Port Project were drawn, the surroundings of Haydarpaşa Train Station were determined as a touristic and commercial center, and the TCDD lands at the back were designated as public service areas.
TCDD stated that the economic value of the lands would decrease and the institution would be damaged. The demand of TCDD was taken by 13 in April 2012 on the agenda of the Municipal Assembly and the commercial zoning permit was granted to TCDD lands with the exception of 2. Thus, Haydarpaşa Port Project has grown even more.
The Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications determined that the Road Tube Crossing Project that will pass under the Bosphorus is not processed in the development plans. The Ministry sent a letter to the IMM and stated that there are limits on the approach of the tube passage on the route, and that this situation may lead to future drawbacks if ignored. Upon this, a new zoning plan was created in the region and the lands of the TCDD were processed as a green area to the new zoning plan.
TCDD objected to the decision and asked for the reinstatement of its lost rights in another part of the project. The Metropolitan Municipality Council decided to compensate for the loss of rights arising from the restoration of the land in TCDD land in another part of the project.
