Author: Abdelkareem, Maisa
Abstract: The main objective of this research is to study housing policies in Greater Khartoum with special (attention or concern) to the issues of residential densities and size of plots. The basic hypothesis of this thesis is “the application of housing policies resulted in a variety of implications, one of which, is the high residential density inside the small plots in 3rd and 4th class areas, and the second is the (uneconomic) utilization of resources ,i.e. land, services, networks, … etc.” The methodological approach is based on reviewing the literature to situate the study within a theoretical frame work, then selecting the residential area in Khartoum as a case study, where certain houses are selected according to selection criteria, A survey for the selected case studies in (Eldiem) carried out and data about the families, the existing houses are collected. The analysis and syntheses of the collected data is carried out, and findings are summarized in conclusions and guidelines. The findings of the study show that, the small size plots in 3rd and 4th class residential areas, and due to the extended family types that habit them, have very high densities, that created unhealthy conditions within these plots in addition to the intrusions for the public out doors spaces in these neighborhoods. As a conclusion, the research recommends more flexible measures and standards should be adopted when deciding the residential plot sizes like sociocultural and economic criteria of the target society.
