According to census 2011, the current population of India is 1,210,854,977 with 623,724,248 males and 586,469,174 females. The growing population is the result of industrialization and urbanization. The tremendous amount of population growth is one of the reason for the exploitation of natural resources. The United States estimated that the world population grew at an annual growth rate 1.23 percent during 2000-2010. In India, the top three states where highest population was recorded in Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar state. The growing population needs good infrastructure, housing complex, commercial and institutional space which comes at the cost of natural resources (Lakes, forest, parks). For analysing, relationship between city and lake fringe spaces(Waterfront space), a case study is
done for the Pune city. The case study is limited to the Pune Municipal Corporation limits. Under Pune
Municipal Corporation, there are four lakes, Katraj Lake, Pashan Lake, Dhanori Lake and Lakkaki Lake.

quantitative and case study approach. At the end of the paper, a number of guidelines for the
waterfront development are recommended.
