Abstract

The laws that are related with the erection and development of urban and rural settlements considered as planning laws. Planning for city development, residential establishment, industrial erection, infrastructural development, provisions of utility services are always guided by some prescribed rules and regulations of the country. In Bangladesh, large number of rules and regulations are executing by different government organisations for the development of urban settlements. The present study focuses on the development and development control of urban settlements, authorities who are entitled for execution of the relevant prescribed rules and regulations and the disputes arise during or after the execution of the said rules and regulations. There are different types of residential formations in the urban premises of Bangladesh. Primarily, it may be divided into two parts - government residences (e.g. residences for government employees) and private residences. For both the types, there are different laws that are executed by different authorities. From the viewpoint of prevalent regulatory arrangements of the country, private residences may broadly be divided into
four types-such as community development, high-rise residential buildings, simple private dwellings and related residential units. For the above mentioned residential developments governmental permission is necessary for the private landowners but different laws prescribed for different urban areas and different authorities of Bangladesh. It is noticed that these laws are overlapped, ambiguous and contradictory that hinder proper execution of these laws. To deal with all these issues and disputes some effective guidelines have to be formulated.
