small plot of 1800 sqm. Most of the plot frontage along the main road is
occupied by an existing petrol pump leaving just a driveway for access with a
square shaped space beyond which is buildable upon.

SPATIAL CHARACTERISTICS Most of the city inhabitants have been used to living in individual houses with private garden and open spaces. However. the last few years have witnessed rapid urbanization and in response to this the governing rules which earlier allowed buildings of only 15m height and a buildable area equivalent to the plot size have been changed to allow 50m height as well as a buildable area 3 times the plot size.As a result of this few high rise residential buildings have been constructed still remain unoccupied due to lack of open spaces .CONcept Predominately low rise Most of this city has existed with low rise development over the last few decades.
