Searching for solutions to the problems arisen as a result of rapid expansion of urbanization has brought some methods. The branch of law in which the rules related to the urban transformation have been regulated is called as Urban Transformation Law that is one of these methods.
Since ancient times, people have wanted to benefit from the advantages of living together. The importance of phenomenon of the city has increased with the effect that brought the industrial production into the forefront instead of agricultural production of Industrial Revolution. Cities have started to allow immigrants especially because of plurality of job opportunities. Industrial facilities have remained in the city center and surroundings of them have started to expand. So, the phenomenon, what we call as urban sprawl, has begun to uncover. Even if there occurred problems except from urban sprawl such as air pollution, effects on climate and water sources and increasing costs, there is irregular and unconscious structuring of the city in the source of the problem of this kind. These problems arisen with urban sprawl have caused searching for solutions on this issue and as a result of this, the concept which we call as Urban Transformation has come up.
We can explain the concept of urban transformation as reconstructing process, realized in the areas in which problems are seen like deterioration in cities, wearing or unable to adapt new conditions, with the solutions that are physically, socially, environmentally, and economically permanent and regardful for the whole city. There are dimensions of urban transformation such as design dimension directing urban alteration, development and protection physically, social dimension dealing with the elements like access to the public services as health and education, exclusion from society, crime, participation of local people to the process, economic dimension dealing with the improvement of job opportunities both qualitatively and quantitatively in the area in which urban transformation happens and its surroundings, and legal dimension interested in evaluation of laws and local decision machine in terms of project. And the aims of urban transformation are increasing quality of urban life and level of welfare, composing a system that will help city to adapt to the changes that will happen in time, avoiding unnecessary urban expansion by providing urban areas to be used in the most effective way, and taking precautions that are preventer to the losing economic aliveness which is one of the biggest reasons of urban deteriorations.
As urban transformation is a concept of which certain parts of society are affected in many aspects, it regulation with rules is inevitable. We call the field which includes the legal rules influenced by this concept as Urban Transformation Law. While the rules of Urban Transformation Law were uncovering as against the rules stated formerly in some laws in legal system of our country, specific arrangements have recently been started to make in this field. According that, Law on Renewal, Preservation and Survival of Historical and Cultural Immovable Assets, numbered 5366, Municipal Law numbered 5393 in respect of 73rd article amended in 2010 and Law on the Transformation of Areas under Disaster Risk, numbered 6306, can be show as the most important sources in our country related to this branch of law. This branch of law contextually arranges conditions, extent, relationships in fundamental rights of freedoms and procedures of urban transformation.
