The research aims to explore the rationale of practicing land lease tenure system for housing. The targeted lands are those which are owned by government but are used least optimally resulting in government to be unable to provide affordable housing to larger section of population. Study highlights and analyse perceptions of stakeholders involved in existing land management and tenure systems for analysing viability of leasehold land tenure system. It is perceived that public land leasehold system for housing development can increase stock of public rent free and subsidized housing. Internationally, use of public land to pay for its development has multiple rationales. It ranges from incentivized land use rules to generate more floor space, to increasing local government’s revenue for land. The urbanizing cities like provincial capital, Lahore, need development conditions and regulations that can make optimal use of limited land supply to control urban sprawl and provide efficient housing. The constraints limiting the land supply in case of Lahore pertains to more conservational aspects rather than naturally restricting terrain for developments. Keeping in view the past practices and socioeconomic patterns, this study aims to propose best suitable, Development conditions, and procedures for developing public leasehold system for housing.
