INTRODUCTION
 
The future of our cities is dependent on the actions of today. Inparticular achieving cities that are sustainable is an imperative inour rapidly urbanizing world. The predictions are that by 2020 61%of population will be urban.Cities must be economically viable, socially equitable and contributeto environmental protection of all species: adhering to the conceptof the 3 PILLARS OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENTS.We will be discussing now emerging conceptual ideas work whenput into practice through a range of policies and planning strategieswith ultimate objective of achieving urban sustainability. WhileCHENNAI has always experienced varying degrees of indiscriminateand unregulated change, it is suggested that a consented effortshould be made to incorporate the city’s distinctiveness andevolving nature into a strategy of urban sustainability. Establishingthe social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainabilitycan contribute to the recovery of a city’s urban spirit and the re-emergence of a clear delineation between the currently blurredboundaries of the rural and the urban.Development should be such that the households and companiesare within the reach of activity locations either without moving, oron foot, by bicycle or by public transport, or by making moreefficient and cleaner use of private cars
 
Achieving a successful, sustainable city region canOnly be achieved with a shift of focus in policy from the compact City to the wider regional scale. Sustainable objectives include theefficientUse of land, good accessibility to employment, and key services
 
And facilities through public transport use, walking and cycling,High density would seem to be a fundamental prerequisite.However, the design of the sustainable urban formCannot be restricted to high-density development alone. Lowerdensities are a reality in many places and it is suggested that theywill continue to be. Sustainable design must thenbe adaptable to the specific requirements of a particular urbanform, be it high or low density.

In Chennai, urban
sprawl
is becoming one of the mostdominant problem of chennai

as this city is increasing atfringe of an urban area over rural land.
As a result, several people have settled down in lake areasand in dry beds of water bodies. The reason being that it ischeaper to buy land and build a small shelter on. Over theyears, these houses get bigger. The
unauthorisedoccupation
of lakes, tanks, canals and water bodies has onlyaccentuated the problems for those who have built theirhomes on approved layouts.
Madhavaram and Valasaravakkam are classic examples of this
civic dilemma.
