I believe atleast for Kollam we can have a planned development in terms of highrise buildings near the waterbodies. There should be a minimum of 100 metres distance from the banks and keep the land between the Lake banks and the building for lawn and other amenities including sporting facilties such as football/cricket grounds.

As Kollam city consists of a good share of Ashtamudi Lake, a well planned residential development in the city outskirts will make it one of the best in Kerala. As the apartment culture in Kollam is not like in the big 3 cities or even Thrissur, Kannur, and Kottayam....there was enough time for us to learn from the mistakes that other cities made and go on a well planned mode to preserve our lifelines and natural resources such as lakes, ponds, and other green lungs.

The corporation of Kollam should show some maturity and act accordingly to have defined norms in this regard so that we can make Kollam a best city for residential purpose.

I meant the same viewpoint in the last post. Instead of filling cities with tall buildings, we must earmark spaces for parks, manmade forests, waterbodies etc. Kollam is one of the rare cities in India where there is a lake, a sea in the vicinity and a river not far. The spread of the city is also through different terrains - Golden Sands, Black Sand, Laterite etc. Now, the corporation authorities are doing nothing - either to protect the heritage or nature or its importance. Nor they have any vision of its future. Kollam City now a days grows only by the support of private parties. Anyway, we can hope for a better, green and clean Kollam in future.

That means big groups have started foraying into the Kollam real estate market.

All this time we have been seing only the local builders coming up with residential projects except Artech Realtors..

Now the trend has started..Asset Homes, Kalyan....

Lets hope these projects will come up at locations and do not harm the environment and the waterbodies leaving enough space and value for greenary and environment.

True Quilonsky... I have great hopes on our city especially as it is one of the cities in India where we have enough water bodies and varied natural resources including hill ranges and waterfalls within 55 to 65 Kms.

The variety of waterbodies include rivers, streams, numerous ponds, canals and ofcourse the lakes, backwaters, and the Arabian Sea. Where in India can we see these variety within the radius of 25 Kms..

We can make this place a better one..yes as you mentioned we need a visionary leadership but no backed by the conventional political parties whose main intention is only vote banks. Lets hope a leader will emerge and will do the necessary action for Kollam and make this land a better place in the coming days..

It is infact a good thing that we dosen't have much high rise apartment projects, let it be like that only in future also. We need infrastructural developments only in terms of beutiful and wide roads and bridges. But it is really alarming that nowadays some real estate groups are targeting klm for their projects.

Nanda, the space crunch issue and the cost of construction of an independent house after purchasing land is going to get aggravated and this context force people to go for apartment culture in important cities. This scenario is becoming relevant in our city also due to the unavialability of land and skyrocketting land price even in the neighbouring panchayaths.

My take on this is ...we should have a well designed and defined residential plan at the city outskirts unlike in Kochi, TVM, or Trissur where hundreds of apartments have mushroomed consuming the valuble land of the core city.

A classic example of unplanned development in our city (I do not know why corporation has given approval for that project) is the Kaveri apartments right on the side of RP Mall.

Residential projects should not be allowed in the core city areas..residential projects should come up at the city outskirts atleast 4 to 5 Kms radius off the city centre. Corporation should not give approval within the core city limits for mamoth residential projects. Let it come up at neighbouring panchayaths keeping the environment and greenary intact.
