Abstract: The rampage of hooliganism, criminality, housing problems, infrastructural decay, social vices, environmental degradation and traffic congestion have been considered outcomes of rapid population growth and tremendous pressure on civic infrastructure systems. Urban renewal is perceived to play an important role in the policy towards sustainable development of cities. The study achieves this through a literature review of urban renewal programmes and draws out implications for effective urban renewal programme in Nigeria.
