Abstract: The study consists of both the patterns of land use composition, spreading and distribution of “Khalidya city” in Anbar Province, Iraq. Regarding the generation of slums with endemic mismanagement of in the city of Al Khalidya, the pattern of landuse needs urgently to be studied and then problems which arise from improper planning can be identified in order that the development of a strategic optimum application can take place. The objective of the study is to identify natural and administrative contexts in shaping the urban form of City of Al Khalidyah indicators that influence property use, such as natural, human variables and spatial interactions and to provide combinations and reasons for land use, economic social and utilities feedback in the area under the study Indicator influence in context of natural growth and planning decision-making was calculated using the SPSS software. The model’s input was focused on information sources: field studies, immediate interviews with individual’s municipal decision makers and the Governorate’s Directorate for Urban Planning. The development of Khalidiyah has largely been focused on natural contexts (economic and social), with a view to only addressing the residential crisis, whilst all facilities and utilities have been overlooked with no concept of sustainability, together with the usage of natural and human capital The city plan highlights the failure to utilize agricultural areas, prospective tourism, and renewable sources as well as environmental and economic tasks.
