Binh Dinh approves plan to develop Cat Tien into a coastal tourism urban area21/05/2023
By 2035, the goal is for Cat Tien to become a southeastern urban area in Phu Cat district, serving as the gateway to the Nhon Hoi economic zone.
The People’s Committee of Binh Dinh province has issued a decision approving the overall adjustment plan for the construction of the Cat Tien urban area in Phu Cat district until 2035.
The plan envisions the development of Cat Tien as a medium-density coastal tourism urban area that conserves and enhances natural ecosystems, and includes the creation of a regional beach tour park.
Additionally, the plan outlines two directions for the development of Cat Tien: to the south towards the Cay Bong area (a branch of the Dai An River), and to the west towards the Chan Dat neighborhood and Dai An River. The plan encompasses the entire Cat Tien town in Phu Cat district, covering an area of about 1,764.15 hectares. The goal of the plan is to provide a legal basis for the establishment of detailed plans and investment management according to the approved plan.
To organize the urban space, the plan calls for expanding the administrative center based on the existing town hall, extending it southwards towards National Highway 19B, and reserving land for the development of urban public spaces to the west. The plan also focuses on developing high-rise service, commercial, and hotel buildings along the Trung Luong beach, along the extended Nhon Hoi economic zone road, and mixed-use, commercial, and residential high-rise buildings, educational, and health facilities around the intersection of the economic zone road and National Highway 19B.
According to the People’s Committee of Binh Dinh province, the main highlights of the Cat Tien urban area will include the Quan Am statue to the north and the wind power system in the southeastern area. In addition, the plan anticipates developing high-rise buildings as landmarks at major intersections, with low-rise buildings (up to five stories at most) in other areas. For existing residential areas north of the Nhon Hoi economic zone road, building heights are limited to 20 meters.
The adjustment plan is intended to provide a specific direction for the overall plan for the province’s development until 2035, while also supplementing and updating the direction of the overall adjustment plan for the Nhon Hoi economic zone and Phu Cat district. Previously, according to the provincial development plan until 2035, the overall plan for the Nhon Hoi economic zone until 2020, and the overall plan for the Cat Tien urban area until 2025, the direction of development for Cat Tien was defined as a satellite city of Quy Nhon, serving as a center for services, tourism, and supporting the development of the Nhon Hoi economic zone and Binh Dinh province as a whole.
