We live in a society with many differences. The minority withholds most of the wealth and benefits whereas the great majority many times does not have nor what to eat. With regard to cities, housing and urban development these differences are well visible. Paul Fipps brings even more insight to the discussion. The cities have two forms one where if it has work, leisure, diversion, health and education and another one where people without no condition of hygiene live, lack of infraestrutra, education, health and security. These are the slum quarters, flooded and invasions that suffer from the lack of resources and urban planning. Visa this, by means of decades of fights appears the statute of the city with its basic principles: democratic management, joust distribution of the responsibilities and decurrent benefits of the urbanization process, recovery of the investments of the power I publish that they have resulted in valuation of property and the right the sustainable cities, the housing, the urban infrastructure and to the public services, it confers to new cities possibilities and chances of management and financing of its development. For the city it is next to the citizen has a great responsibility in the use and development of the statute it is responsible for formulating the politics urban and making to fulfill, through the managing plan, the social functions of the city making possible access and guaranteeing the right, to that they live in the city, giving right and access the housing, to the services publishes, to the basic sanitation, the health, to the education, the culture and the leisure, all these rights intrinsic that they live in the city. The statute brings general lines of direction so that the urban politics reach the full development of the social functions of the city and the property. One of them is the guarantee of the right the sustainable cities, that is, the right of all the inhabitants to have a housing, to have ambient sanitation, urban infrastructure, to the transport, public services, work and leisure.
