Urban Zones stretching along the Radials and the Crown are places where a true collective living environment of Auroville is to emerge. Residential units interwoven with the multiple open public spaces, pedestrian routes, social amenities and meeting nodes. The ground floor of the future developments is to be entirely given for the active public use of the residents accommodating for the needed facilities serving the local community (residential units to be permitted at ground floor when accessibility is needed for the elderly or disabled).

The Green Zone will not share a centralised infrastructure system such as waste water, power and surface water management. There is a provision for development in the Green Zones with density specified in the further chapters, but any proposal is to enhance and not to dominate the qualities of this predominantly green area.

As specified in Urban Design Guidelines (2010) defining two different environments, Urban and Green zone, provide a framework for achieving the critical density required in sectors 1&2 while maintaining a significant green space. The location of each area was defined in the Galaxy Model (1968) by Roger Anger. The relatively higher gross density in the Urban Zone makes possible to preserve the Green Zone as a generally accessible green area and reduce the capital costs for infrastructure. The Green Zones is a predominantly green space with a small number of cluster houses located in this generally accessible park. Green Zone residents will be acting as guardians of this park where the recreation grounds of the Cluster houses will not form closed compounds to avoid parceling out the land that is to be enjoyed by all residents fenced off land directly adjacent to the housing unit can happen to provide privacy and security.
