Abstract

The perception of residents on the quality of the public housing was the subject of this study. This was in the light of the fact that this approach is being increasingly adopted in the provision of housing for to mitigate deficiencies in this area. A survey of fifteen out of seventy-nine estates selected across the three separate income typologies and the three housing providers in Lagos State, Nigeria. Data were collected through the use of structured questionnaires. The results of the study reveal that although the respondents indicated that the spaces provided were adequate, the areas of services such as electricity and water supply need to be addressed. The spacing of the buildings also needs to be addressed in subsequent schemes as the respondents indicate high obstruction to ventilation.
