Urban planning is a multi-disciplinary process of urban development & economic growth, specially planned for urban infrastructure, civic facilities, high-speed transit, potable water supply & modern sewerage treatment system are much talked about subject in recent time. Most of our urban areas are having fast growing population without properly planned land use & utilities. The capital city Dhaka is not an exception. Urban planning is important because UNHCR predicted that in 2050 two-third of the World population (66%) would live in cities and urban areas. BCL’s engineers & planners maintain high standards of planning & design of urban affairs particularly infrastructure, transportation, housing & landscaping.
