Abstract:Decentralization was introduced in Tanzania in 1972 as a logical step in the implementation of the policy of socialism and self-reliance. The following hypothesis provides a general framework of analysis: 'The more comprehensively and systematically rural development is planned and assisted by the state and its regional agencies the more certain it is that local points of concentration. will assume a tiered structure in two and eventually three levels ...'. In Tanzania this emerging three tier structure includes the village (sub-ward) at the lowest level, the ward, district headquarters, the regional headquarters at the intermediate level and the capital city (Dar es Salaam and Dodoma) at the apex. Sections: Introduction - Spatial structure before the Arusha Declaration of 1967 - Spatial restructuring under decentralisation - Spatial interaction through planning - Development of Ujamaa villages as Service Centres -Conclusion.
