Abstract

The ability of a community for reproduction has a great link with the environments they live in. A plan for an urban area must achieve the objectives and the needs of the people in the area under study. These achievements are strongly linked with economic, environmental, and social factors, as key elements for a sustainable development. A sustainable plan enhances social and environmental relationship with less capital loss. This study has focused on the impacts of transportation and land use planning in urban planning. Transportation and land use planning are the two main pillars of any urban plan that could map the route of how a development in an area would take place in the future. The study has therefore tried to highlight the critical factors for a sustainable development in urban planning, which could guarantee a healthy growth so that the possibility of future degradation is avoided. Keywords: urban planning, land use planning, sustainable development.
