ABSTRACT A house is a basic and fundamental human need. In a literal sense, a house provides warmth,shelter and security. Beyond its physical nature, the concept of ‘house’ is deeply ingrained inhuman civilization as the space where the institution of family is nurtured. It is a place thatreflects a person’s identity, living condition, human values, aspirations, future expectationsand one’s social and cultural identity. However, despite the global recognition of itsimportance, many millions of people in the world live either without safe habitable housingor without any housing at all. This situation is common in developing counties, especially inurban areas. Interestingly the Mysore is one of the historical and compact city of India. It has been noticed that population in this area increasing rapidly since 1901. Moreover the city boundary or urban area is also expanding which increased almost 5 times after 1970’s. Therefore increasing population and their demands requires place of settlement. This increasing pressure on land for residential purpose ultimately encroaches the open and vegetation areas that disturbs the environment. In this sense there is need of sustainable planning to build the houses in outskirts of city and also need to adopt some policies for the better life in old Mysore city. Key Words: Urban housing, Land use Land cover, Sustainable development, RS/GIS and Mysore City
