 Summary:
 Characteristic of the 19th century urban planning in Subotica was appliance of continuous efforts to regulate, arrange and beautify spontaniously settled town. To achieve that several techniques were applied to implement urban plans: diferentiation of the „inner city” from the outer subburbs, annexing houses to the street regulation line, application of compatible house plans, building civic instead of village houses, etc. This resulted with continuous development and regulation of the town. After the Second World War, collective housing was favorized according to the new socialist ideology, but the state was not able to fulfil current urban plans. In the period of transition individual house owners are also neglected and urban development is directed to a small number of building investors. This way of planning and building of town resulted with the plans unappropriate for the majority of the house owners, illegal building, small percentage of the realisation of urban plans, frequent changes of a plans, demolishing of valuable building heritage, lack of concept for continuous development and ever bigger level of inordinateness and with chaotic urban structures.
