A REVIEW OF ENUGU (ENUGU STATE, NIGERIA) URBAN GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT
ABSTRACT:- Enugu Urban of Enugu State of Nigeria came into being as a result of the discovery of coal in the area in 1917 by the European explorers. This paper presents a study carried out to appraise the growth and development of the area over the past five years. Survey research design was adopted in the study. Multiple regression analysis was used in analyzing the data collected during the study. The use of the model was to ascertain the magnitude and significance of relationship among the identified development indicators. The test was performed at 5% level of significance. The analysis revealed that there is only a weak relationship among the identified indicators. The trend of development from the initial points to other areas was rapid initially but slowed down in the later years. The slow pace in development was identified to have resulted from inadequate attention to newer innovations to cater for ever increasing population of both people and vehicles. It is suggested that vigorous efforts be made to anticipate workable new innovations in urban design and management chief, of which is the Environmental Planning and Management (EPM) approach.
