Although the history of construction of new cities with previous plan dates back to the time B.C., the New City movement is related to the beginning of the twentieth century, at the suggestion of Ebenezer Howard (1850-1928).
In Iran modern urbanization has begun since about 1921 and construction of Noshahrs (new cities) in recent decades has been considered in order to settle the overflows of population of large cities and inhabitants of industrial centers and for military, political and economic purposes.
The urbanization of Isfahan province has increased dramatically in the last decades in terms of developing economic activities in the agricultural, services and especially industrial sectors, and, in addition to creating inconsistencies in geographical distribution of urban population of the region and the province, it has caused many social and environmental problems and difficulties. Therefore, urban planners have chosen the policy of creating new cities in Isfahan region and constructed new cities in line with the policy of urban centers development, settlement of surplus of population of Isfahan city and reduction of its problems as well as settling industrial section employees.
It is worth noting that some of these Noshahrs, while accepting part of the population surplus in Isfahan, face particular problems.
In this paper, using scientific, descriptive and documentary methods, the situation of the Noshahrs of Isfahan region has been analyzed and finally some strategies have been proposed for the planners of new cities.
