The tree cutting in the land near Certitude is a visible reminder of this gap. The land was flattened and is being offered for sale. AurovilleRadio tries to shed some light on what is happening there. Interviews with land owners and Jesse from the Auroville Council give two different perspectives on the subject.

Living model
by David R. Brower   
Monday, 04 August 2008

Private property land recently aquired by Auroville “Auroville is unique not only as an environmental project but also as a living model for a new form of relationship between Nature and urban development. In this regard, I have been troubled to learn that the integrity of this valuable experiment is being jeopardized by the encroachment of private developers buying up parcels of land within the Auroville area. This not only creates a serious threat to Auroville and its planning process as an integrated model, but it even leads to an uncontrolled spital of inflated land prices, making it even more difficult for Auroville t secure lands necessary for a unified plan.”

Quarterly Update.
"We are happy to inform that during the quarter under review 20.5 acres were bought on the edge of City area and the Green Belt. Several more plots of land in the prime locations in the City area and the Green Belt are available for purchase. Hence, all fresh donations could be of immediate help. To miss opportunities to consolidate Auroville physical base is to miss the basic resource for the integral and unified flowering of Auroville and, consequently, of her future potentialities."
