In many places new homes are needed but the only space available for building them is in the country side. Some people believe that it is more important to protect the country side and not build home there. What is your opinion?

Due to proliferating population, the demand for housing is increasing at an alarming rate. While cities are facing the problem of the space crunch, the only option left to cater the growing demand, by building houses on the outskirts. Some people are not in the favour of using the countryside for urbanization. In my opinion, it is important to build homes in the suburbs but with some planning and regulations.
, cities
have become
has become
overcrowded and congested.
, urban dwellers have to face the serious issues
as traffic congestion, pollution and sky touching prices of urban properties.
, developing the countryside will bless people to purchase property at a budgeted price and resolve other problems.
, developing suburbs will generate a plethora of job opportunities for the rural people and stops the movement of people into the cities in search of jobs and quality life.
For example
, the construction of Special economic zones in the suburbs of Noida has generated job options for the people’s living there and
improves their living standard.
, converting rustic areas into urban areas will be advantageous.
On the other hand
, there are a few drawbacks of transforming suburbs into cities. The agriculture production will decrease due to less availability of farm land after the transformation.
For instance
, a report by food department of Australia has revealed that 40% of the rice production had decreased due to urbanisation. In conclusion,
developing outskirt areas will reduce the burden on the cities and opens the gateway of opportunities for the rural population yet there are some disadvantages.
, by limiting the space for urbanization and green belt area, we can overcome the demerits and make the planet earth a beautiful heaven to live
