While a checklist was used to collect data on the extent of compliance, data were analyzed using means, standard deviation and one-sample t-test. Results confirmed most developments disregarded the planning standards on setbacks. Hypothesis tests reported a significant difference between the respective recommended setbacks (rear, side and front) and the extent of developers’ conformity, t (289) = -20.382, p = .000; t (289) = -8.937, p = .000; and t (289) = -14.746, p = .000. The study concludes that developers flout planning standards owing to a gap in enforcement. A recommendation is made for the adoption of locally nurtured standards that address the existing socioeconomic attributes as an alternative of relying on those generated at the national level. This study enriches the current body of literature in urban planning by empirically confirming how compliance with planning standards on setbacks may be statistically assessed.</em></p> Wilfred ochieng omollo, Dr. ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-02-03 2020-02-03 4 1 95 108 10.25034/ijcua.2020.v4n2-9 Industrialization and Urbanization in Turkey at the beginning of the 20th Century <p><em>This research is an attempt to understand the industrialization period of Turkey’s Early Republican Period (1930’s) and the spatial effects of the new production system. Right after the Turkish War of Independence, The Republican Government had aimed to establish an independent country and started to carry out a modernization and contemporization project. This project had different dimensions appealing to the institutional, economic, social and civic aspects of Turkey.&nbsp; The economical dimension included the industrialization and economical independence.&nbsp;</em><em>Besides its economic, political and social goals, the Republican Government had aimed to change the physical appearance of the country. The Government’s first goal was to turn the country into the space of the National Turkish Republic State from an empire’s land. Secondly, the small towns or settlements of the country were supposed to become modern cities.&nbsp; That explains why the factories which were set up all around the country had played such a crucial role in the modernization period of Turkey at the beginning of the Republican era. They were not only economical achievements of the state; they also affected their physical and social environments and introduced the modern way of living particularly where they were set up.</em></p> Senem Zeybekoglu Sadri, Dr. ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-01-15 2020-01-15 4 1 87 94 10.25034/ijcua.2020.v4n2-8
