In any planned economy of the world, the issue of high cost of building material cannot be over-emphasized. There should be a regulatory bodies or agencies of government with the view to achieve harmonic development in real property market in such a way and manner as to promote economic growth and satisfaction to the terming population who invest in this sector of economy as a result of significant role building materials play in real estate, there must be a check to any abnormal rise in such materials being used in other not to cause high cost of building construction.
However, due to weakness in regulatory agencies there is an alarming rate of inflationing trend leading to unstable economy in our nation which therefore has an adverse effect on the building industry.

Development has a wide meaning among Architects, Engineers and surveyor. Development has been defined by statute the best known being the town planning laws in Europe America, Africa and else where.

In the course of time, the cost of construction of a decent shelter for an average family began to rise, cost of building materials and inflation much more than thus, was the immediate need to contain the over populated urban centres, which were fast charring out ghettos of different sorts. The rise in the population could no longer be match with corresponding rise in the provision of good shelter for the populace majority of the people did not even have enough to live not to mention having money to build their own houses. There, nor arise a problem of providing shelter for the ever-emphasizing population in a depressed economy.
Properly development may be under taken to meet new or an expanding demand as in the case of house building be needed to replace existing assets in order to meet present demand more effectively or the supplant oblate properties.
