Can you imagine the area of open space every Amdavadi gets? Just stretch your arms and the extent covered by your reach is the answer.

Citing an earlier study carried out at CEPT University, a group of students of the PG course of Faculty of Planning have noted that the space of 1.3 square metres per resident of Ahmedabad is much less than the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendation of nine square metres.

An earlier study had indicated that since 1990, about 31 percent of the green space in Ahmedabad has been replaced with buildings.

The ‘City Studio’ project under tutor Nikita Bhakuni had 15 students analyzing 15 city precincts of 1 sq km area each to understand the use of space. The highest per capita open space is available in Maninagar at 1.99 sq m, way below the norm, while some precincts like Khokhra have no open space at all. The study adds that as one moves from west to east, spaces shrink.

The study says that against the desired 8 square metre per capita floor space for residential buildings, Jamalpur and Gita Mandir areas have apartment spaces as low as 3 sq m per person, while Vejalpur and Khokhra have semi-detached and row houses giving 7 sq m per person.
