An exploratory study, based on the view that urban renewal and slum clearance programmes are important vehicles by which planners can redress some of the congestion in the inner areas of primate cities of the developing world, swollen by post-war industrialization and urbanization. Evaluation of these programmes in terms of their impacts on urban small industries provides new knowledge of relevance to the problems and solutions of urban evolution. Confines itself to only one aspect i.e., the possibilities of employing such measures together with land use control to spark off decentralization of urban small industries into the adjacent rural areas. -from Author
