Nanded is a small town located in Maharashtra State, in the Western region of India. When approved in 2012, 30% of the town’s population resided in informal, urban settlements, caused by high unemployment and a lack of adequate affordable housing.
This housing development was initially implemented by city municipality in 2008, however construction had halted and been eventually abandoned, when concerns were made about a lack of community consultation during the design and building phase. SPARC Samudaya Nirman Sahayak (SSNS) in partnership with Reall then took over the project and since completed 210 core houses. The new units cover a plot size of 25 square metres and consist of one bedroom, a kitchen, living room, bath and toilet; fully equipped with household water, sanitation and electricity.
Approximately 60% of the work involved new construction and 40% focused on upgrading and finishing current work. Much of this focused on the rehabilitation of existing communities without the relocation of residents. The settlements chosen were selected based on surveys and ratings by the Nanded-Waghala Municipal Corporation which identified the most vulnerable slums for upgrading, and development of new infrastructure.
