Evaluating the Impact of Neighborhood’s Urban Form on Social Sustainability in Gurugram
Sakshi Gahlawat and Prof. (Dr.) Parveen Kumar
An integral aspect of every sustainable community is to focus on social sustainability. The built environment is crucial to ensure a healthy society. It's possible that different urban patterns might either promote or discourage social sustainability and integration in a given area. Because of the difficulties in establishing a connection between sustainable development and urban form, new design principles have emerged, such as new urbanism and compact cities. It improves people's well-being, sense of community, and quality of life by providing access to amenities. Sharing the neighbourhood’s key facilities with all inhabitants can contribute significantly to neighbourhood satisfaction. This study examines how different types of urban forms affect the social sustainability of a neighbourhood. This article looks at four different areas of Gurugram, Haryana, India, with different urbanforms in order to better understand the link between urban form and social sustainability. Household and observational surveys conducted in these four places revealed that communities with homes clustered near walkways or shared open spaces had greater social relationships. The research found that the presence of high-quality open space, diversified socioeconomic groups, and easy access to public spaces and social infrastructure all contributed to the social sustainability of a neighbourhood.
