View PDF Version
This regional planning survey of the Northern Region has been written at the request of the Town Planning Department of the Ministry of Works and Supplies. Initially, it was intended to restrict the survey to the physical aspects of planning, the aspects of settlements, services, service centres and infrastructure in particular. Under an agreement between the Town Planning Department and the University of Utrecht, the authors were assigned the task of surveying the existing pattern of resources of the Northern Region of Malawi with a view to making recommendations for the improved Organisation of physical development through plans and policies aimed at securing greater coordination of development effort, at strengthening and relationalizing infrastructural services, at identifying rural-urban relationships and generally at providing a basic framework for integral planning of the region's land uses.
