Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the importance of zoning and development in city planning in Nigeria, with the aid of relevant statutes and cases. In other to generate meaningful data, we generated primary data from journals, books and online comments while secondary data was gotten from staff of government development agencies via interviews. With these staff we interviewed we generated data directly relating to the impact of zoning and development in city planning in Nigeria. Our findings revealed that the zoning of a city or state drives infrastructural development as well as human capital development in terms of creating jobs, attracting investors and increase internally generated revenue for the state. We recommended that government should decongest the existing cities from time to time by creating zones, districts, etc, as to drive the necessarily development.
