A Shipyard Township


A privately owned shipyard proposes to establish a township for its employees in 200 – 250 acres of land in Southern Maharashtra, for a population of 5000 residents. The township is designed such that more than 90% of the population (especially those who may not own an automobile) can have all facilities within walking / cycling distance of less than 500 m and all facilities are connected by all weather covered walk ways. A 30 acre rain harvesting lake is expected to make the township self sufficient in water.
