According to their sources, the petitioners believe that Lahore's agricultural region has been improperly relocated into urban areas. Moreover, thousands of trees would be removed in the implementation of the plan which would further aggravate the already deteriorating environmental condition of the city.

The Master plan also states that the developments in four districts namely Lahore, Shaikhupura, Qasur, and Nankana Sahib will be carried out in accordance with the government policies at the provincial and federal levels. The LDA has already approved the proposed planning in this regard. The proposed Master plan will encourage vertical developments with Limited horizontal ones. The Master Plan also envisages the management of transport, the creation of jobs, and boosting of economic activities in the region.
