Rehabilitation and Resettlement of Untenable Slums

Housing Strategy Studio aims at developing a citywide housing strategy to improve access to affordable and decent housing for all income groups. Access to decent housing that is affordable for all is key for a habitable city. Cities across the developed and developing countries are grappling with varying degrees of housing unaffordability as per the specifics of local land and labour markets. Issues such as inadequate delivery of serviced land in cities, irrational and counterproductive land and building regulations that impose high costs on housing unit price, other regulatory processes such as environmental clearance, RERA clearance, stamp duty, and registration often cause further delay, additional time and thereby increase the price of housing units. As consequence markets are unable to provide units below a certain price range, leaving a large section of households seeking housing adjustments uncatered and for whom access to affordable housing remains a critical issue.
