Abstract: Infrastructure is the basic physical and organizational structures needed for the operation of a society necessary for an economy to function and physical networks that support society. Socio- economic growth of a town is motivated by means of socio-economic and more so with the physical Infrastructure development in the town. It prerequisites the input in the form of working on land resource and physical infrastructure viz. roads, rail, water supply, drainage and solid waste management. Urban Local Agencies then become responsible for fulfilling the physical infrastructure requirements thus developing the area with every development stage. Many times Urban Local Bodies overlook the sustainability aspect while working on physical growth of a town as they do not contemplates of the quantity and the quality of the resources available. This bring in the issues of unsustainability of physical infrastructure affecting the overall sustainable development in town. Hence, Architect planners should consider the carrying capacity of the resources available in the vicinity of the town while planning the development so that local agencies can work for sustainable development.
