Hi there,
Please proofread

In a small but populated city, land is particulary precious. The demand for land is high and competitive. So, the government has to well plan the land development for both commercial and residential uses.
Sometimes, reclamation is a way to provide more land to satisfy the demands of businessmen and residents.

thanks

Depends on what you mean.

You have stated that the current land area is scarce.

I would say methods for getting more land are VERY scarce.

Sometimes, reclamation is a way to provide more land to satisfy the demands for building space.
