City and Regional Planning is the process of organizing "spaces for people" in line with the economic, social, cultural and technological developments and making the necessary decisions in terms of planning and design. City Planning involves identifying urban and regional settlement and development policies and preparing plans and projects by examining developments of various scales within the framework of national policies and development plans. Shaping of the dynamic social structure and the integrated urban structure with agile and effective decisions is of prime importance for City and Regional Planning.
