9 Factors which should be considered (such as consequential development) which could lead to environmental effects or the potential for cumulative impacts with other existing or planned activities in the locality
S.No Information/Checklist confirmation Yes/No Details thereof (with approximate quantities/rates, wherever possible) with source of information data
9.1 Lead to development of supporting utilities, ancillary development or development stimulated   by the project which could have impact on the environment e.g.:
  • Supporting infrastructure (roads, power supply,waste or waste water treatment, etc.)
  • housing development
  • extractive industries
  • supply industries
  • Other
Yes Noticeable ancillary developments are expected due to construction of township. But, a moderate positive impact on socio economic condition expected from the job opportunity is likely to arise from the housing units. The positive impacts are in the transports and small scale business. The present rate of migration to cities is likely to reduce due to better employment opportunities - likely to arise due to proposed township.
9.2 Lead to after-use of the site, which could have an impact on the environment No There is no after-use life limit for the township site.
9.3 Set a precedent for later developments Yes There may be increase of housing units and other amenities in future as per Govt. policy.
