Planning law, policy and urbanization: A case study of Lusaka
MetadataShow full item record
Lusaka as a capital city, has found itself with a large population whose problems it can hardly cope with. Because of its centrality and function, it has and will continue to grow. Due to the ever increasing urban population, the city has faced problems of housing, planning and unemployment. This population affects the political, social and economic policies, and increases pressure on the demand for urban land. This research set out to look into Urbanisation, Planning Law and Policy. Planning is an integral part of any government, and as a result the planning law, that is, the Town and Country Planning Act must be representative and meet the demands of an ever growing population. The laws which govern the city in its planning, social, economic and political affairs assume an importance of the greatest magnitude. Urbanisation though not a legal subject must be taken into account when dealing with land policy. If the planners and administrators are to carry on an appreciable job of managing the city, it becomes imperative that the effects and causes of Urbanisation are analysed.
