URBAN RENEWAL

URBAN RENEWAL

URBAN RENEWAL

The process where urban neighborhood or area is improved and rehabilitated. The renewal process can include demolishing old or run-down buildings, constructing new, up-to-date housing, or adding in features like a theater or stadium. Urban renewal is usually undergone for the purposes of persuading wealthier individuals to come live in that area. Urban renewal is often part of the gentrification process.

These renewal projects came up in order to solve the non-planned urbanisation problems. Thereof, there are some regulations such as 5393rd Municipal Law and 5216th Metropolitan Municipality Law.

Lastly, 6306 LAW ON RENEWING AREAS UNDER THE RISK OF DISASTER encourages the developments about urban renewal in Turkey.
