Lavasa townsip near pune is having unfunctional layout and bad town planning, feels experts. According to world standard and UN Habbitat Council, 30% of land of the township or urban area must be left on internal roads. Lavasa having roads less then the standard practice by almost keep it up to 12% on main internal roads.
CRZ and now CRM regulations, it seems relaxed, do not allow any construction within 500 mtrs of high tide lines. Instead of providing for openness on coastal areas and leaving place for roads, Lavasa is banking on water body and touching the cliffs of coastal water line.
