Özet

The construction industry has often been used to boost the economy in time of crises and constitutes one of the most important profit making sector in Turkey. As a result of the current economic growth model which focuses on construction activities, urban spaces have been subjected to uncontrollable pressure in Turkey. Hence, developing new construction land and increasing construction rights in existing settlement areas have become common among local and central authorities in the last years.
