Existing land use survey for draft Development Plan of Phaltan, Satara
In association with Mrityunjay Ashram Trust, Phaltan, Sustainability Initiatives was involved in creating a vision for the 3rd revision of the draft development plan of Phaltan- a town of about 50,000 population in Satara District. SI was involved in the existing land use Survey and created the existing land use (ELU) map after an extensive ground survey. Along with the land use the ELU also mapped existing infrastructure, services, building typologies, age of construction etc. Based on the ELU, it was analyzed that Phaltan, with its projected urban development will lack the basic civic amenities and hence an alternative for extension of urban jurisdiction was proposed. The work currently stands at the level of State Cabinet approval.
