Since the proclamation of the capital city of Bangladesh in 1971, Dhaka city had become an exponent of rapid urbanization in South Asia. It has now become one of the largest and most densely populated cities in the world. It is fast approaching towards an abysmal city growth situation where growth control would be difficult to achieve. In absence of appropriate land use planning policies and practices, the concerned regulatory and service providing agencies failed to act coordinated way to manage the needs of infrastructure, utilities and amenities for work and living places. This thesis work attempts to review the current state of coordination among the urban planning agencies, their roles and responsibilities in general. It also endeavours to recommend how the principles of 'integration’ and ‘separation’ can be adopted to formalize roles and responsibilities of the concerned urban planning agencies to ensure better-coordinated service deliveries to the city dwellers.
