The planning of new cities in the world over the last century has been used in response to changing social and economic conditions and national planning priorities, and each country, in the context of its development, has planned and practiced the construction of new cities, and has used it as a means of addressing urban and regional problems, or as a motivation for economic revitalization of regions that have suffered from economic recession as well as for development of less developed areas.
New cities in Iran have been entered the urban planning system and constructed under various headings over the last three to four decades. Increasing urban population and the need to create new urban centers that can accommodate the extra population is one of the effective factors in construction of such cities. These cities are built to prevent the spread of large cities and metropolitan areas which are faced with numerous problems such as rising rents, high prices of land and housing costs. The experience of building new Iranian cities and their positive and negative points is of special importance. In this paper, we tried to study the status of new cities and their positive and negative points as one of the experiences of urbanization, and it is hoped that its results could be effective.
