Application of virtual reality in many areas can effectively drive real-time operational decisions and resolution. Virtual reality simply covers a vast range of aspects such as medicine, engineering, history, entertainment and almost any field comes across our mind. With such exposure into this new era, this attempt of carrying out a research in this topic has been taken. This study involves the research of urban planning with a main feature of Virtual Reality in it, specially created as top notch for town planners to have a realistic visualization while working on urban planning. It gives them revelation of a fully developed town by also giving a feel of a real environment, the idea of threats, effects and recovery plan should any catastrophe occur and the amenities or facilities provided in that area. At the end of this research, the development of a prototype virtual reality system is produced for aiding town planners in solving their daily routine problems. The main aspect of the program is to help town planners to visualize and detect problem prone areas before a building or construction is structured. Also as said, the land structure of any particular area can be studied and justified to suite the type of structure to be set so that flood, landslides or any mishap that most likely to happen can be avoided or controlled with backup recover plans . The backbone of the prototype system implemented using two programming language VRML and Java. The image and animation has been developed using Flash 8.0 and Adobe Photoshop 9.0.
