Abstract :
[en] Urban areas are often developed according to their zoning codes. Each city's zoning is planned considering its character and function. The size of streets, height and size of homes, building sizes, space reserved for pedestrians, and even operating a small food business from home is designed based on the zoning rules. The opinion of residents can be helpful for better planning and management of a city. Unfortunately, in Pakistan, public opinion is not considered in the planning and management of cities. This study focuses on the urban sprawl, its impact, and the urban challenges faced in Quetta, Pakistan. It is based on field surveys, questionnaires, observations, and interviews. The results focus on seven key aspects of urban facilities. The results show that urban sprawl is rapidly growing in Quetta city, and there is an urgent need to address this issue. In the end, the recommendations are made to provide better health and living facilities for the residents of Quetta.
