Planning fails to keep pace with urbanisation – Viet Nam News

Viet Nam News reports

HA NOI — Only about 30 to 45 per cent of Viet Nam’s urban zones are the result of detailed planning, a construction ministry survey shows.

And rapid expansion and complex planning procedures are likely to ensure that the rate will not quickly improve.

The survey shows that in major cities such as Ha Noi, Hai Phong and Da Nang from 70 to 100 per cent of the inner-city has been thoroughly planned.

Detailed planning ranges from 25 to 40 per cent in outer-city small-to-medium urban precincts.
