Charkop, The fastest growing suburb of Kandivali is located in the north Mumbai. This pollution free suburb is connected to the main town through S.V. road, western express highway, new link road and Local trains. It will soon be connected by metro and sea transport.
Charkop has established as a cosmopolitan area since last ten years, it has become densely populated as it has become address for thousands of people looking for affordable housing in suburbs,But as the residential areas are multiplying, so are the problems. Roads are getting congested. Heavy traffic jams and noisy streets are common sites. More roads are needed and existing roads need improvement.
Water remains a perennial woe. Add to this flooding during monsoon is a common problem in Charkop as some of the locality is in the low lying areas. In Charkop, there are aging neighborhoods with poorly maintained houses and buildings, and failing or non-existing Infrastructure (streets, sewers, sidewalks).
These areas can become centers of overcrowding, and drain the entire community socially and economically. Moreover apart from a good address there are problems like lack of parking spaces, green spaces, inadequate light and ventilation for individual dwelling, leakages and seepages, disturbing skyline and so on.
THE HARD FACT REMAINS THAT THE INFRASTRUCTURE HAS NOT KEPT PACE WITH THE DEVELOPMENT.
Within a span of 15 years the suburb is demanding a need for affordable housing.
