social needs

1) better transport systems-more roads could be built on the rural-urban fringe to cope with the increase traffic. more and more better public transport systems need to be planned

2) more housing- this can be built on brown field sites which are near the city centre,or on the rural urban fringe for the commuters.

3) social activities- parks (greenfield) replace brownfield sites in cities and places for activities are set up in the rural-urban fringe.
