Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine residents’ perception of development control activities in three capital cities in Nigeria (Ibadan, Osogbo and Ado-Ekiti). This came about based on the recognition that jumble development hinders economic and environmental sustainability in cities. The perception study becomes imperative since perception is adjudged a tool for proffering solution to different problems in the different human endeavours and a method of getting policy information from the people that will be eventual subjects of the policy. Design/methodology/approach – The study used household survey through questionnaire administration. The three capital cities were stratified into local government areas (LGAs). One local government area was selected in each of the cities. Due to homogeneity of the cities in the nomenclature of political wards, two political wards were selected in each of the local government in the capital cities. Across the cities, a total of 223 residents were systematically sampled on which the designed questionnaires were administered. Findings – The study revealed that residents agreement and satisfaction with function of development control agencies decreases with the age of the city. Impliedly the age of the city is inversely proportional to residents’ agreement and satisfaction with development control activities. The study concluded that economic and environmental sustainability of cities is dependents on citizens’ embracement of development control activities. Research implications – The study is capable of generating hypotheses for future research in the area of environmental studies, especially in the global south. Practical implications – The findings and recommendations of this study can provide information on future policy making, review and implementation on development control and other related issues in environmental studies both in the cities and others with similar setting.

Cel – Celem artykułu jest zbadanie percepcji mieszkańców dotyczącej działalności kontrolujących rozwój w trzech miastach w Nigerii (Ibadan, Osogbo i Ado-Ekiti). Podstawą projekcji badań było spostrzeżenie, iż chaotyczny rozwój utrudnia zrównoważony ekonomicznie i środowiskowo rozwój miejski. Studium percepcji zostało uznane za słuszne, ponieważ percepcja jest rozpoznana jako narzędzie uzasadniające rozwiązania różnych problemów związanych z różnymi ludzkimi staraniami i jako metoda pozwalająca uzyskać politykom informacje od osób będących ewentualnymi podmiotami ich polityki. Układ / metodologia / /podejście – W badaniu wykorzystano badania ankietowe przeprowadzone wśród gospodarstw domowych za pomocą kwestionariusza. Do badań wybrano trzy stołeczne miasta w Nigerii i wyodrębniono w nich po jednym lokalnym obszarze rządowym. Ze względu na homogeniczność miast co do nomenklatury dzielnic politycznych, w każdym obszarze rządowym wyselekcjonowano dwie dzielnice polityczne. Łącznie we wszystkich miastach dobrano próbę 223 mieszkańców, wśród których przeprowadzono badania ankietowe. Wyniki – Badania wskazały, że zgoda i satysfakcja mieszkańców co do funkcjonowania agencji kontrolujących rozwój maleje wraz z wiekiem miasta. Na tej podstawie można stwierdzić, że zgoda i zadowolenie mieszkańców z aktywności kontrolujących rozwój jest odwrotnie proporcjonalne do wieku miasta. We wnioskach stwierdzono, że ekonomiczna i środowiskowa podtrzymywalność w miastach zależy od troski mieszkańców o działalności kontrolujące rozwój. Implikacje badań – Badania mogą służyć do stawiania i testowania hipotez w przyszłych badaniach w obszarze środowiskowym, zwłaszcza w odniesieniu do globalnego Południa. Implikacje praktyczne – Wyniki i rekomendacje zaprezentowane w artykule mogą dostarczyć informacji co do przyszłego kształtowania polityki, opiniowania oraz wdrażania rozwiązań na rzecz kontroli rozwoju oraz innych powiązanych kwestii w ramach badań środowiskowych.
