Sites and Services Scheme (SSS) is a concept designed to provide affordable land for residential purposes through provision of infrastructure in urban areas. However, evaluation of such initiative impact on infrastructure development in Ibadan remains un-examined in urban research field. This study, therefore, considered 53 existing Sites and Services Scheme, that is, government reservation areas (GRAs)/estates in the eleven local government areas of Ibadan. In an attempt to drive home reliable and efficient results that could help inform government urban development policies the researcher employed simple random sampling technique to select 14 top-notch officials as heads of administrative staff in housing-related departments of institutions dealing with SSS in Ibadan Land. A well-structured questionnaire instrument was administered among the selected top officials with oral interview conducted among them. The researcher utilized robust techniques such as Orthogonal Varimax version of Principal-Component Factor Analysis, Correlation and Simple Linear Regression to arrive at important findings. The findings of the study revealed that there is positive and significant correlation between site and services scheme and urban infrastructure development. More importantly, the findings indicate that SSS has significant positive impact on infrastructure development in Ibadan and that for every increase in SSS urban infrastructural development increases approximately by 1. The study affirmed that SSS positively aid infrastructure development in urban areas such as Ibadan city. Sustainable financial plan with strict implementation subject to periodic review from time to time and adequate funding must therefore form the basis of new development.
