15 Min's Neighborhood 

Everyone living in a city should have ready access to essential urban services. Access — to opportunity, to urban amenities, to variety, and to other people — is why people choose to live in cities. The easiest way to travel within an urban neighborhood is to walk or bike — no parking issues, no waiting for an Uber or Ola, or a bus or train. We should all be able to access most of the places we need to go within a 15-minute walk or bike.

Given the inter-relationship between green and grey infrastructure, the concept could play a major role in improving lives and urban environment. The hope that this concept could turn out to be an exciting prospect in today’s urge to decarbonise cities has attracted several civic governments across the globe.

This concept is not new on the urbanism contours, specifically in the Indian context. But in order to transcend Indian cities into resilient ones, inducing walkability and accessibility in the planning process at the micro-level such as wards and neighborhoods becomes vital.

The philosophy that cities should be planned for pedestrians and not for cars and motors, is the driving factor behind the development of the 15-minute city concept. In short, everything should be possible, within a 15-minute walking distance.

There is no doubt that despite a legacy of walk ability-oriented and accessibility-enhanced planning of city cores, our ever-expanding Indian cities need micro-mobility strategies. Area-based planning models can be vital in attaining the required resilience in these cities. Peripheral areas, where commuters reside, need planning interventions of a scale less than that for the master plan.

Cities like Pune, Mumbai and Ahmedabad have adopted the ‘Town Planning Scheme’ (TPS) model of development. This model is focused essentially on the pooling of amenities and residential pockets in proximity. It has been successful in the case of Greenfield developments, as public consultation has been an integral part of the process and Ahura Builders are always take initiative to develop the 15 min’s neighborhood in Pune’s Prime locations.

Although planning norms, master plans and initiatives do not lack foresight with respect to accessibility in cities, there is a need to endorse more micro-level planning approaches. Thus can the legacy of Indian planning, which the ‘15-minute city’ concept resembles, be sustained and urban complexities in cities be resolved.

Ahura Builders always try to work in development and give a new future to surroundings with sustainable point of view. Always open for the new developments and always give a thought / first preference to future development with sustainable manner. Ahura Builders always help to maintain and make a new development for each home buyers as a Sustainable homes. 

                   

History _

A 15-minute city is a residential urban concept in which most daily necessities can be accomplished by either walking or cycling from residents' homes. The concept was popularized by Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo and inspired by French-Colombian scientist Carlos Moreno. 15-minute cities are built from a series of 5-minute neighborhoods, also known as complete communities or walk able neighborhoods. The concept has been described as a "return to a local way of life".
