Compact City Planning

Appropriate urban development strategies for practicability in Indian cities

A B S T R A C T In this dissertation is to study about the possibilities of the compact city planning applying to the developing urban cities in India and its relevance between the policies and schemes framed by the government of India for the advance of urban cities and its development in the outskirts.

The key components of a mixeduse and integrated urban neighborhood, according to Lord Rogers of Riverside

Compact city and neighborhood planning would be the new way of planning which reduces the sprawl of the city by combining various aspects like urban intensification, transits oriented development, merging of different zones like combining office with residences so that the right to use could be easy and accessible.

Recommendation made

1.The growth of the city have to be well planned and in a constrained growth. 2.The city ecological balance should preserved and controlled sprawl to restrict environmental humiliation. 3.The Government should also encourage funds for the infrastructure projects through public private partnership for integrated compact cities and neighborhood. 4.This may well executed in the small cites and suburbs of big cities that could easily adopt the strategies. 5.This could be achieved through policy making which encourages densification, Mixed use communities, Urban public transportation through Public Private partnership method and other necessary facilities,etc.
