Problem

Excessive dispersion of community facilities

Other Names:
Lack of central neighbourhood nodes
Unfocused town centre
Poorly planned town centre
Inconvenient community centre
Undefined village node
Nature:
Public buildings and land areas play a critical role in maintaining civic pride, yet communities grow up in a haphazard and visually unpleasing manner. Many rural communities seem uncertain about their right to decide the use of land in their villages; as a result little space is designated for such things as a community meeting hall, plaza or even recreation area.
Incidence:
Studies of pedestrian behaviour in America show that people seek out concentrations in a community.
