This paper deals with the issue of colonization of peripheral housing schemes by taking Lahore as a case study. It not only presents an analysis of the dynamics of the colonization process but also discusses the policy options to enhance colonization in peripheral housing schemes. The paper concludes that a more systematic approach is needed for generating house building activity in peripheral areas of Lahore. Arriving at the format of such an approach would require a concerted effort on the part of the decision makers to first address some critical policy questions having serious implications for overall housing provision in the city in future.
