Principles for Sustainable Urban Planning
- Planning has to respect the ecology and the natural environment of the area in which the city is located.
- Landuse has to be determined on the basis of social and environmental considerations and not on the basis of land value (or potential land value) alone.
- Planning must give priority to the needs of the majority population which in the case of Pakistan belongs to the lower income or lower middle income classes.
- Planning has to respect the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of human settlements and of the communities living in them.
