Submission Summary
Growing population is one of the important problem faced by whole world. As it comes with the responsibility of completing the basic needs of the people. Shelter is one of the important need of any person. The rural population is usually attracted to the urban areas either to grab the job opportunity or many are attracted to the lifestyle of urban areas. Due to the migration of the people the fringe areas of the metropolitan cities develop on a large scale. The increasing development is one of the parameters contributing increase in emission of greenhouses gases and global warming. So, there is a need for sustainable development of area to avoid the adverse effect of development. Pune city is one of the fastest growing city in Maharashtra, India. It was originated in 1600 and was spread over and area of 7.74 and now in 2020 it has occupied the large area upto 416 It is developing as educational and industrial hub, so people are mostly attracted to this city. In 2020, the new set of twenty-three villages has merged in PMC limits and made it one of the biggest municipal corporation in India. So, the aim was to study 23 newly merged villages in Pune Municipal Corporation and propose strategies for sustainable development of merged villages. The though was to plan sustainable strategies to achieve reduction in emission of greenhouse gases and carbon footprint for merged villages, reduce the load on PMC by planning them self-sustain. The study was carried out on many objectives one of them was to study all 23 villages on parameters like existing land use and analysing the internal and external development stress on them. After these one or two villages was selected for formulating sustainable development strategies. The selection was done considering the potential for development and eco-sensitive areas within or surrounding the villages. Then the detail analysis of selected villages was done on existing and future situation of village. In existing situation detail analysis of land-use, development pattern, road network, topography and infrastructure were done. And for future situation the study for carrying capacity and projected population was carried-out. Another main objective was to study all the low-carbon and sustainable planning parameters and policies for neighbourhood level. Then sustainable planning principals was firstly identified and considering the current situation and development type they were set for selected villages. The detail strategies for parameters like density planning, land-use planning, social mix, smart transportation, walkability, livable street, environmental concern, restoration of land and self-sustain was formulated for selected villages. The final strategies are only formulated by analysis them through multiple steps like firstly the concept behind formulation of each strategy is explained in detail, then how it can be achieved is analysed and then the strategy is formulated. By using these strategies, a sustainable plan for an area at initial planning level i.e., at land-use planning level can be formulated. Which can help to easily achieve sustainable development at neighbourhood and building level. Key words: sustainable development, merged villages, strategies
