What are the differences in layout between a developed city
and a developing city?
- The layout of developing world cities is much less regular
- than that of a developing world city. Land uses are less well-segregated for
- two main reasons. Planning controls are much weaker. Explosive growth has mean
- that newcomers take over any unused land for their homes, These people are
- called squatters ; squatter settlements consist of slum housing , which grows
- into shanty towns wherever there is enough unused land within the city or
- without if not . The layout of developing cities therefor varies from city to city.
- Unlike developing cities the function of a developed city does not include
- squatter settlements. Unlike developed cities developing cities have wedges. In
- developed cities the further you are away from the CBD the more expensive the
- housing tends to be , but the larger the homes tend to be , however in developing
- cities expensive housing is from the edge of the CBD outwards in a wedge to the
- rural urban fringe
