For centuries, many urban areas have been the engines for growth. With the current technological trends, urban areas have better and more sustainable opportunities to make this growth more inclusive to citizens. The pressure to make cities perform within the recommended global marketplace guidelines takes centre stage and therefore the need to create urban places that offer conducive living places for the present and the future is more urgent than ever. Below are some of the guidelines that can help to future proof urban development.
Use technology to simplify complexities
We are in the era of technology and many urban areas can use this to simplify some complexities. Technology makes many opportunities available to citizens for better growth.

This helps to decongest the cities as it encourages more people to use public transport and leave their cars at home.
The more vehicles there are on the road, the higher the level of pollution. Therefore, by trying to decongest the city, you are not only encouraging many car owners to save on fuel but you are also minimising carbon monoxide emissions in the city. A less polluted city means better health for all.
Create more recreational places
Do not forget that relaxation and play is good for both adults and children. While you are trying to improve the cities, do not forget to create places where people can go to relax and have fun. Relaxation also helps the brain to become more creative which in turn leads to better productivity. Features to consider developing for people’s relaxation are sports grounds, art galleries, theatres and theme parks.
