Land Readjustment plans (LR) provide tools for taking control of land development and construction, while organising social, cultural and technical infrastructure. In Turkey, LR applications, Pursuant to Law No. 3194, enable the creation of regular planned urban developments. The success of LR applications involves a comprehensive knowledge about the rules and relationships of the legal and community aspects of society. In this context, LR applications must be addressed and analysed by considering the success factors. In this study, LR application process was analysed to determine a set of quantitative factors in the Trabzon Province in Turkey. Cadastral and LR plans were reviewed to determine the success factors. By determining the quantitative factors: the correct regulation limits, an appropriate change in position of the parcel, the accuracy of the Development Readjustment Share account, the correctness of Public Partnership Share interruptions and the construction of the appropriate parcels, the success of LR applications were tested for pilot sites and comparisons were made with graphics.
