Housing provision is a tangible process of constructing and transferring a residence unit to its beneficieries, its subsequent use and physical reproduction, and at the same time, a social process dominated by the economic interests involved. In order to understand housing provision further, we should not ignore the institutional and other structures within which it takes place neither shall we forget the social agencies actively engaged in such structures (Ball and Harloe, 1992). Housing development is undertaken by a variety of actors distinguished by their respective aims, status and roles (Fisher and Collins, 1999). Social agents are charged with creating and sustaining a particular set of housing conditions, costs and benefits (Ball and Harloe, 1992). low cost housing is one of the major efforts of the government to promote the welfare of the lower income groups (Endan, 1984). National formal housing provisioning program known as the Federal Land development Authority (FELDA) was developed and commenced operation. About 14 resettlement schemes were executed under FELDA (Rabieyah, 1978;Endan, 1984; Agus, 1997).
