Writers' petition dismissed

 Dismissing the petition, the Division Bench comprising of Justice P D Dinakaran and Justice V G Sabhahit noted that there is no Government Order regarding the proposal to construct a high rise building on the over 71 acre plot .

The Bench recorded the statement of the Government Counsel that the development at the turf club, whose lease period is about to expire in the Month of December 2009 will be transparent and no decision has been taken in this regard. The Bench then gave the petitioners the option to approach the Court, if any such development takes place.

Counsel for the writers submitted that the State is planning a 250 floor building at the turf club and sought directions to retain it as a park.

The petitioners said that the City requires the lung space considering the vehicular pollution and that the building planned by the State will add to the current problems of pollution.
