Abstract

The case study demonstrates that indirect benefits of well-maintained urban parks/gardens and water bodies have positive effect on the residents of the city which is reflected in nearby residential property rates indicated by more willingness to pay (WTP) on the part of people willing to buy them. This behaviour was captured in residential plots' collector rate modification policy decision in Chandigarh city of India during 2016. This step led to generation of better revenue by the city administration, enabling more ploughing back of money towards creation/and maintenance of urban parks/gardens and water bodies (e.g., Sukhna Lake). Cases of such kinds are not common in developing countries and need to be encouraged for sustaining local civic authorities financially.
