In many cities, planners tend to arrange shops, schools, offices, and homes in specific areas and separate them from each other. Do you think the advantages of this policy outweigh the disadvantages?

In recent years, the concept of town planning is introduced to better facilitate the inhabitants. The idea is to allocate
proper area
Suggestion
a proper area
for each and every segment.
This
divides schools, hospitals and offices to its distinctive places resulting in a managed
city
.
However
,
this
result in increased travel time for the community and
also
the administrative expenses that
community
Suggestion
the community
has to pay. Though, I believe the benefits certainly outweigh the demerits. In the past, there was no concept of town planning. New developments were done without any proper approval or without considering the important factors of development. As the population increased the authorities considered the importance and introduced proper
city
plans. A planned
city
is a better place to live a peaceful life because residents enjoy the basic facilities.
For example
, Bahria Town is considered best residential society in Pakistan. They have segregated parks, hospitals and residential areas from each other. They develop their society away from industrial areas to keep the area clean from pollution. They
also
claim that they provide best healthy environment
to
Suggestion
for
their residents.
However
, there is an argument among the few that
this
development has increased the living
expense

expenses
of an individual. The travel time to go to school, offices or hospitals
has increased
Suggestion
have increased
.
Similarly
, the authorities are now charging for the facilities they are providing in their societies. Resultantly, we have seen an increase in living expenses for the residents.
For example
, Bahria Town has certain charges of security, maintenance and club memberships which they collect from their customers on
monthly basis
Suggestion
a monthly basis
. Though, to live a peaceful and secure life many consumers are willing to pay
such
expenses in order to give a healthy
life style
a manner of living that reflects the person's values and attitudes
lifestyle
to their families. To conclude, a well managed
city
always gives the locals a sense of comfort and peace.
However
, it comes at the cost of increased living expenses and travel time. Considering the facts, the inhabitants prefer to live a well managed
city
because the advantages outweigh the disadvantages of town development.
