ABSTRACT

Housing is a basic need of every human being just as food and clothing. Density simply refers to how much of a particular object or thing there is in a particular unit of space. The aim of this research work is to analyze urban land use planning, with the view to knowing the major density type and the area exhibiting the highest residential land use in Minna metropolis. This research analyses housing densitie, social services and infrastructure and the environment surrounding the selected neighbourhoods. The sample frame for the research work consist of ten neighbourgoods which are GRA, Barikinsale, Shango, Dusen-Kura, Tudunwada-South, Fadipe, Kpakungun, Maitunbi, Sabongari and Bosso. The sample size of 5 percent was used for the research work and purposive sampling technique was used to administer the questionnaire for this research work. Primary and secondary data were collected and analyzed using descriptive statistics, quantitative method was also employed to analyze housing densities in the selected ten neighbourhoods. The result from the field survey revealed that the highest density that is dominant in Minna metropolis is the high density out of the three types of densities existing in planning, the research also revealed that neighbourhoods with high density are more prone to environmental hazards such as erosion, noise pollution, infrastructural degradation. Areas characterized with high density have more negative challenges in terms of infrastructure, facilities and social services, some of the available infrastructure are no more functioning the ones that are still functioning are over stress. The obscene are principally due to limited intervention by the urban authorities to augment local initiatives. In conclusion, the highest housing density in Minna is high density, most of the infrastructure in the sampled neighbourhoods are in poor conditions and also environmental condition of most of the neighbourhoods are very bad. It was recommended that government and stake holders should re-think high density planning and consider how this can be of great help in urban centers in Minna, government should also work with the local neighbourhood associations available within the neighbourhoods to know the needs of the people and how best to plan for the people.
