Newtown Housing Project 1st Phase was launched first time in 1986, this project was purely for locals. Initially, very nominal charges were paid for 500 sq/yd and 1000 sq/yd Residential Plots. Almost more then 50% area at here is populated now and all basic facilities are available, i.e. electricity, drinking water and telephone. Thereafter Phase-II. III, IV-A and Phase IV-B were announced. Phase-II and III is also allotted to locals whereas in Phase-IV, some plot were allotted to the people out side of Balouchistan. It is surprising that these plots were allotted only on the payment of Rs five to ten thousand. This Housing Project works under the supervision of DCO Gwadar. All Record of plots file is available in DCO office Gwadar.
In this Project plots having size of 500 sq/yd, 1000 sq/yd Residential and Commercial are there, later on in 2004 some Plots having size of 400 sq/yd were also allotted, but not so far site is selected/marked. Maps of Newtown Phase-I and II are available, where as there is no Map in the market of Phase III and IV, may be, it is available with concerned office. But the Plot having size of 500 sq/yd and 1000 sq/yd are authenticated and site has been marked. A sketch in this regard is posted here; one can view it by enlarging it and can see the exact site of any Phase. It is not an official sketch but just for information of general public. According to present planning Phase â€“I is located at Airport Road. Phase-III on it other side (west sea side) of Phase-I, Phase- IV â€“A is located at the North of Phase-III, then there is Phase-II and at last Phase-IV-B in the same line. All Newtown area is prime land and it will be the first face of new Gwadar.
Main Jinnah Avenue Secondary Road starts from Phase-I, after cutting corner of Phase-VI-A , IV-B and passing in the center of phase â€“II, it finally meets the Main Coastal Highway at a point between Chap Kalamati and Jorkan about 5 kilometers from Zero point.
At here transfer is very simple. One who purchases the Plot should submit the sale agreement along with required document; But all documents should be completed and Thesildar should endorse sale agreement. A Duplicate copy on same allotment paper is issued in the name of purchaser and old original copy is placed in the said office file for record. Purchaser should get the original receipt of the amount deposited in the bank by the original allottee .It will be helpful in case the file is lost or missing, on basis of the duplicate copy of allotment order and receipt, a
fresh new file could be prepared.
After the planning of Main Jinnah Avenue Secondary Road , old design of Newtown is disturbed, but the new design is much better and it gives much importance to it, It is expected that after completion of Main Jinnah Avenue Secondary Road, which is about 300 feet wide and its length is about 20 kilometer (approx), it will be costly area. Both sides of the Road , there is a commercial plots line. Despite of how long it takes, but when it’s completed INSHALLAH, it will be like Blue Area in ISLAMABAD, and people living in Islamabad knows the value of blue area. So it is prime land for commercial point of view. The work of Main Jinnah Avenue Secondary Road is started by GDA and is in progress, Govt. is making sufficient funds in this regard.
