Urban Issues: Urban Challenges in UK

82 percent of the total population in the UK are living in urban areas. There is an uneven distribution of the UK urban population. Densely populated areas are typically located in the southeastern part of the UK, while in some areas, it is sparsely populated. An example of this is Northern Scotland.
Major cities in the UK are found in flat, low-lying, and densely populated areas, which are near rivers or coastal areas.
