CHAPTER 14 PHYSIOGRAPHY AND REGIONAL STUDY
14.1 NATURAL GROWTH TRENDS
The population of the Dormitory town of Talegaon is growing fast due to readyavailability of the infrastructure facilities and a good network of transport facilities withfrequent local rail linkages at regular intervals providing connectivity to many places likeLonavala, Dehu Road, Pimpri, Chinchwad, Khadki and Pune.The trend of development of the town is observed in all the directions around it.
Housing developments like bungalows, apartments, row houses in the form of ‘ribbondevelopment’ are growing along Vadgaon
- Chakan road and Mumbai - Pune road. The townis growing partly on the Station road, Chakan road and to the west of Kadolkar colony asthere is rare scope for development on the east side due to limitations faced by Dehu Roadcantonment, nearby agricultural fields and sloppy grounds.
14.2 DELINEATION OF THE PLANNING BOUNDARY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN
Talegaon Dabhade is witnessing a rapid growth in almost all the directions along themajor transport access corridors except the eastern side where the town cannot growfurther due to presence of Dehu Road Cantonment area. Hence vision for the newdevelopment should include either full or part of the surrounding areas into the planningboundary along with the existing municipal limits. While deciding on the new planningboundary, the landuse proposal at the regional level as prepared by the Pune RegionalPlanning Board has been taken into consideration.The municipal boundary is bordered by the neighbouring villages of Katvi, Vadgaon,Akurdi, Ambi, Nanoli, Indori, Pandarvadi. Small portions of these villages and major part of the villages Somatane, Shirgaon and Varale have been included in the planning boundary.The planning boundary for the town follows the proposed ring road which will act as a majorfreight corridor reducing the freight traffic into the town which is presently causing a lot of congestion. The growth direction has been proposed towards the MIDC in the North andtowards Pimpri Chinchwad and Pune in the south. Planning boundary has not beenincreased towards the Talegaon-Chakan road and Indori at present. Vadgaon has not beenincluded in the proposed new municipal limits.There is an anticipation of Talegaon Dabhade becoming urban agglomerate with thetowns of Chakan and Vadgaon as per the present growth trends. The new limits have beenproposed to oppose the unrestricted urban sprawl which may come up due to uncheckedgrowth caused by the developmental opportunities in the region.
