They included: ( Bombay Town Planning Act of 1915 )  Preservation of human life and energy, rather than superficial  beautification.  Conformity to an orderly development plan carried out in stages.  Purchasing land suitable for building.  Promoting trade and commerce.  Preserving historic buildings and buildings of religious significance.  Developing a city worthy of civic pride, not an imitation of European cities.  Promoting the happiness, health and comfort of all residents, rather than focusing on roads and parks available only to the rich.  Control over future growth with adequate provision for future requirements.  Concepts..  Patrick Geddes explained an organism‟s relationship to its environment as follows:  “The environment acts, through function, upon the organism and conversely the organism acts, through function, upon the environment.“  (Cities in Evolution, 1915)  In human terms this can be understood as a place acting through climatic and geographic processes upon people and thus shaping them. At the same time people act, through economic processes such as farming and construction, on a  place and thus shape it. Thus both place and folk are linked and through work are in constant transition.
