An Integrated Urban Structure for Kilifi Coast Province Kenya, University
In most of the small urban areas and service centres in henya one observes & relatively dispersed urban structure with the various eluents so* tines very widely dispersed* It is not unoaimon to find the administrative/ health services being widely separated from the oomjcercial, educational or religious functions of toe town, "his kind of urban structure becoiies a problem in that the uro^ision of urban services and utilities becomes relatively expensive. Very often eaoh of the separate, urban functions would have to be regarded as a separate unit and provided with for example, its own water supply, leading to duplication of efforts. It is tne contention of this toesis that this situation arises out of historical, physical^economic, social and political factors which must be thoroughly understood before any attempts are made at solving the problem, it is further eontenfscl that an integrated urban structure must be evolved to bring into close relationship all the scattered elements at lAt in the initial stages of the towns' growth.
