Rapid urbanisation of the last century
causes more slums to mushroom
in the major cities of the world
particularly in developing countries.
Unplanned townships make it difficult 
for government to plan for better
service delivery such as roads,
electricity,health,water and sanitation.
Local planning authorities should halt 
illeagal allocation of land which leads 
to the proliferation of slums.
Government should keep planning 
for the poor;and must find better 
solutions of phasing out slums
which have characterised many
towns and cities of the world.
And slums lie on a GOLDMINE
(PRIME LAND)which can 
generate great wealthy
for poorer communities.
