Abstract: Residential areas in most Nigerian cities are fast losing their beautiful scenery and privacy. This paper examines the changes that are taking place in residential areas in Benin City and their effects on the city's neighbourhoods. A field survey was carried out with the use of questionnaire. The study reveals the proliferation of many economic activities disorderly located in the neighbourhoods and the conversion of many residential buildings into mixed uses. Thus the neighbourhoods have been polluted and violated by these activities which sprang up as strategies of coping with the prevailing poor economic conditions in the country. The paper therefore urges the planning authorities to ensure sanity in the location of these activities in the neighbourhoods and to ensure strict enforcement of planning approval for building conversion and change of uses.
