The Study of Impact Land use Planning on Energy Consumption (Case Study: Tabriz City)
Abolfazl Ghanbari * 1
Abstract:   (2222 Views)
One of the problems in today's cities is  lack of proper land use planning and the overuse of various types of motor vehicles especially private cars, which lead to traffic congestion and increased energy consumption resulting to side effects such as increased atmospheric and noise pollution, reduced health and quality degradation. The present research has been conducted to evaluate the effects of land use planning on travel generation and energy consumption in Tabriz city and is descriptive-analytical in terms of its applied and descriptive nature. With regard to three intensive cities approaches, intelligent growth and transport planning, indicators have been developed to study the impact of urban land use on travel and energy consumption. Using the radius of access in the network analysis, which is one of the tools for reviewing the range of urban services in the GIS, the indicators surveyed by the GIS show a more favorable situation of the city's central regions than urban suburbs, and there is an appropriate infrastructure in this part of the city. This issue necessitates more attention to the planning of land use in the whole city of Tabriz, especially in the suburbs. This is because it reduces the people’s use of the suburbs in case the existing problems in the areas are eliminated and their needs are met.  A city in the city center will reduce traffic and reduce travel both in the center and in the suburbs.
Keywords: Land use, Mixed Land use, Energy Consumption, Transportation, Tabriz.
