Therefore this study will help to establish the degree of encroachment in the road reserve in high density housing areas. Secondly, the study will help planning authorities review, improve and develop new approach to development control in road reserves. Thus basing on the study results planning authorities will be able to develop more effective strategies to development control in the road reserve. These effective strategies will regulate illegal developments in the road reserve. As a result, it will minimise damages to survey reference marks and beacons; minimise problems encountered by the utility bodies in the transmission of water, electricity and telecommunication lines. Finally, the study will help planning authorities revise and develop new and lively planning laws and standards that take account of the change in technology. Technology is constantly changing and this change in technology is making some planning laws and standards become outdated. Therefore, the study will help planning authorities to revise planning laws and standards in order to incorporate these new technologies.
1.4.0 Main Objective The main objective of the research is to assess the effectiveness of development control in the road reserve.

1.4.1 Specific Objectives
1) To measure and record distances with a measuring tape from the centre of the road to both ends of the road reserve boundary. Each road has a specific standard road reserve width. For instance,
