Abstract: In India, large cities are experiencing rapid population and spatial growths. The rising land costs are making the construction of reasonably priced. Local and Planning Authorities are encouraging to transition to commercial retail establishments or higher-density residential uses that supports the need to supply housing apartments by designating streets and areas. Many streets in residential areas have altered into commercial, public and semi public activity and apartments. Transition of land uses is inevitable in large cities like Mysore. Thus, the residential areas are affected greatly in terms of increasing density and overloading the existing infrastructure facilities by changing dynamics of land use. With a result of this, the residential areas are transforming into mixed land use. The City of Mysore is on the large and emerging metropolitan cities in the State of Karnataka. Jayalaxmipuram residential neighbourhood is one among many residential areas which was developed immediately after Independence. The neighbourhood is experiencing rapid land use transformation. The paper presents the residential neighbourhood transformation due changing dynamics of land use in Jayalaxmipuram, Mysore and proposes planning strategies for addressing the transitioning of residential land use.
