Abstract [en]

The historie core of Pune is seriously neglected, despite its rich cultural-historical values and evidence of the city's past for fu­ture generations. These assets are not taken inta consideration in development plans for the city. Besides the national monu­ment of Shaniwar Wada, INTACH has identified around 200 more buildings on its heritage list. These vary from temples, to private residences and public buildings to bridges. Apart from this, INTACH also has identified heritage precincts -areas with a particular distinct character -either architectural or due to the nature of the activities which take place there. Of this list, more than a hundred buildings have found a place on the her­itage list adopted by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC).

Note

All Indian cities and towns are facing tremendous pressures in terms of population influx and economic growth which is leading to direct and indirect impacts on environmental re­sources, the health and wellbeing of people, the equitable distribution of resources and the overall social and built fabric. While these impacts have been identified to a certain extent, municipal bodies in India are ill-equipped and lack the capac­ity to conduct research on and devise strategies for alterna­tives for dealing with them. Conventional methods of planning are failing to keep up with the demands, needs and aspirations of the citizens. In addition, municipal bodies, while trying to catch up with the task of providing infrastructure to the cities, often end up with stop-gap planning measures and initiatives which contradict the principles of sustainable development, as well as the preservation regulations for their historie quarters. Broad areas of urban planning such as strategic long-term planning and holistic systematic approaches, as well as more specific ones such as heritage conservation or environmental restoration are seldom considered in the agendas of municipal authorities. Even where these aspects are considered, rarely do officials have the capacity to incorporate such approaches in their work. Property rights and land value issues overshad­ow building value and the will to form a proper development plan for the city - particularly for the historie city core -with building regulations, as well as solutions for traffic and public transport.
