Urban Planning

Urban planning is a technical and political process that is related to land use and development, public welfare, urban environment designing, environment protection and usage, and the improvement of the infrastructure going in and out of urban areas like transport, communications and distribution networks. Urban planning is alternatively referred to as urban and regional planning, regional, city, town, or rural planning in different parts of the globe.

Urban planning takes care of the systematic development in the urban, rural as well as suburban areas. The chief concern of urban planning is the planning of communities and settlements. But, it also deals with the planning and development of resources like water, preserving natural environment and the use of agricultural land as well.
