Abstract

This paper explores to understand the Rural Urban Continuum (RUC) development in Kerala in terms of its reason for the formation, urbanization, characteristic features and issues for governance. The paper argues for the need for having a specific settlement typological classification which can help to reduce issues in Planning and urban governance. An attempt is made to determine the indicators which can be used to determine the typology of settlement pattern. A methodological construct is also explained which can be used to delineate the typology of such Settlements.
