Chittagong is the largest port city as well as commercial capital of Bangladesh which is surrounded by Sea, River, Hill and natural beauties. The development of Bangladesh greatly depends on the development of Chittagong. The natural beauties must have to be enhanced by taken up effective measures and development works for building a sustainable city. Chittagong Development Authority (CDA) starts its mission for a better Chittagong.

As the honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina promises for Digital Bangladesh and specially development of Chittagong, we believe that we (CDA) are towards that step.

The present Government is taking different projects for the development of Chittagong through CDA and other related government agencies.

Chittagong Development Authority (CDA) is playing a vital role to promote development, coordinate development and control development following its Master Plan (1995), Detail Area Plan (DAP) and Building Construction Rule according to the national development objectives. We are trying to promote Chittagong as an appropriate recipient of investment from national and international sources. The Chittagong City Outer Ring Road project with collaboration of CDA and JICA is one of them.

On the other hand, CDA has a close relation with the general people, so, CDA is also committed to the people for better service. To provide service to the people and for a better Chittagong, CDA has already taken different initiatives. To alleviate traffic congestion in Chittagong City, CDA is going to construct 5 Fly-over in different important junctions and widening different major roads. In order to provide housing facilities CDA has developed various housing projects in different parts of the city. So far CDA has handed over almost 6000 plots to the general people. In addition to that CDA is going to promote an international Hospital (Apollo Hospital) and International educational institution (Delhi Public School) in CDA residential area. We are also going to construct a low income worker’s dormitory for women in collaboration with BGMEA.

All these development projects I would like to share with you with a motto ‘CDA is for Chittagong’.

The activities and services of CDA can also be viewed by this website that we promise to the general people for a planned city and to perform government development strategy.

We welcome you all for your advice and opinion for a better Chittagong.
