Abstract: The house together with its immediate environment is the single context in which the largest range of human needs are met and the greater part of human life is lived. Sociologists and political leaders are unanimous in their view that the poor standard of housing in the city is one of the major causes of wide-spread discontentment leading to social unrest. Thus the physical framework of infrastructure, shelter and communications for man have to be adequately and satisfactorily provided. But good planning does not stop at providing adequate social facilities and public amenities for society to function in the quality of living should also be considered. Furthermore, as society progresses people are more affluent. Their needs change as well. Good planning should allow room for flexibility. As a whole, all aspects of public housing planning should fundamentally be aimed at serving man and society.
