Urban growth is the development and population growth of cities and towns. This development might take the shape of urban boundary extension, population density increases, or rural or underdeveloped regions becoming urbanized. Urban growth is caused by a combination of factors including economic activities, population growth, industrialization, and the position of the municipality. Demographic pressures and rural-urban migration are also major drivers of urban expansion, particularly in developing countries. The expansion of urban areas leads to the occupation and destruction of soil, deforestation, and loss of natural ecosystems. Overall, a combination of economic, demographic, and social factors drive urban expansion, with implications for land use planning and sustainable management of urban areas. This research paper gives an overview of the urban growth trends and its impact on Krishnanagar city.
