Majority of the central area of the city provides a wide different of uses serving the needs not only of the towns own residents, but also of people in the neighboring villages or small towns that come within the surrounding of its zone.

It is an area of rapid growth in population, so the demand upon its central area services becomes intensified. Large building are developed while residential buildings are given over to commercial, industrial, education, civic or other non- residential uses.

The above features often create certain problems which may be in compatible with the zoning regulation of an area or it may structurally affect the existing land uses of the area. In view of the above statement, this project will highlight the main reason responsible for incompatible land use in the central area which include poor classification of central area uses, lack of zoning of building use group and the traffic circulation problem(vehicular versus pedestrians traffic). The general existing land use of the study area, impact of government on land use control and management as well as the problems caused by the incompatible. Land uses in the study area, will be discussed and appropriate recommendation will be given.
