OGUNDELE, Joseph Adunbi, JEGEDE, Amen Osamede


This work examined the environmental consequences of poor housing development in Ado-Ekiti, Nigeria. Housing generally refers to the social problem of ensuring that members of a society have a home in which to live, whether this is a house, or some other kind of dwelling, lodging, or shelter ( Ananya,2009). Data for this study were collected from primary and secondary sources. The primary sources of data collected were from physical survey and the administration of three hundred (300) questionnaires, through multi-stage random sampling techniques. Results from this study shows that so many housing units in the study area were devoid of modern /adequate housing facilities, many of which were built with mud materials, poor housing and environmental condition. This study therefore recommends that since scarcity and high cost of land is a major impediment to the growth of proper housing in urban areas like Ado-Ekiti and as such, the Government at all levels should regulate the price of land in the area to enable developers build adequate and modern housing facilities at affordable prices Keywords; Adequacy, condition, consequences, environmental management and poor housing.
