Arrangement of Settlements and Infrastructures: Notes for the Urban Fringe Areas Development in the Eastern Part of Indonesia

Rahman Abdullah

Abstract: The settlements can be interpreted as a residential area with all supporting of infrastructures such as public facilities and social amenities. An urban fringe areas or area behind the town is part of the unplanned settlements so that the distribution of these facilities is relatively less supportive. This paper aims at trying to assess the efforts of settlements and infrastructures in the urban fringe areas of the city as the concept of urban development, especially in the Eastern part of Indonesia. The reason is simply because of the various previous experiences showed that many development of urban areas in Indonesia have less attention towards the development of rural areas. As a result, this leads to the urban bias development. In principle, if the settlement and regional infrastructures in urban fringe areas are better laid out accordingly to the needs of the daily activities of the residents including business supporting the economic and social facilities, it is expected that movement of population from rural to urban will indeed decline. Therefore, the efforts of urban fringe areas development should be planned and coordinated with specific regional units and other stakeholders, so that any potential frictions between the regions do not occur on one hand, and many people in the islands and rural areas will not be interested in moving to urban areas on the other hands.
