The problem of zoning and planning created by urbanization is not limited to urban centers today. The re-production of the space corresponds to the expansion of the space requires changes in rural areas as well as changes in metropolises. In this context, the zoning peace regulation implemented within the scope of the Law No. 7143, which was published in the Official Journal on 11.5.2018, brought many discussions. In this study, it is aimed to discuss the zoning peace practice and the criticisms brought to the said application over Trabzon, which has the feature of being the most applied province in the Eastern Black Sea Region, and to support the theoretical findings in the relevant subject with practical data. Especially considering the place occupied by the illegal settlements in the plateaus in the Eastern Black Sea region on the political agenda, the study is based on the results of the fact that zoning peace practices do not exclude the places subject to private law provisions. In addition, the results of excluding the municipalities from the zoning peace process were also included in the study. As a method suitable for the purpose of the study, numerical data on the implementation of zoning peace in Trabzon were reached by contacting Trabzon Provincial Directorate of Environment and Urbanization and the Eastern Black Sea Municipalities Union. The numerical data in question have been evaluated based on their theoretical background and the risks that may arise with zoning peace are discussed.
