Your City Suburbs Planning Permission Screen
Here you can unlock planning permissions to settle your Suburbs in new Province on the Empire Map or grant the ability to found whole new suburbs to manage using Urban Points.
After migrating to the Inner Empire you can increase the number of suburbs you are in control of and their positions on the Empire map using Urban Points.
The higher the province level the more likely you are to yield rarer resources and commodities, the Barbarian presence will also be stronger the further outward you expand.
The relocation fund can be topped of from Denarii which you can collect from buildings in Suburbs , Cards, Trade or Quests.
Once you have contributed enough to your relocation fund you may found and manage additional cities in later provinces to gain access to rarer resources and gain greater multipliers for certain commodities like Prestige and Imperial Points.
The Denarii required will increase depending on the level of provinces you are planning on relocating to.
Urban Point Loss
If your Urban points are negative it is because your buildings have been destroyed or placed in the Vault due to relocation or migration. Once they have been destroyed they will have been downgraded slightly and placed in your vault. In order to restore your Urban points, you will need to replace and upgrade your destroyed buildings.
