Abstract

The Neighbourhood Concept was first introduced in the 1920s by Clarence Perry. This paper adapts Clarence Perry’s Neighbourhood Concept and other neighbourhood planning theories. It studies the land use dynamics of Fereej Abdul Aziz, one of downtown neighbourhoods in Doha. The theory is reinterpreted to study three parameters: physical, mobility, and social aspects. The main objective is to empirically investigate the dynamics of existing land uses of downtown neighbourhoods. The study aims at exploring types of land activities and their existing conditions in the study area. The findings aid in making land use guidelines for the downtown neighbourhoods in Doha taking into consideration preferences of the inhabitants. The study would provide useful insights and efficient planning preferences for land use and how change in Downtown neighbourhoods occurs due to the rapid urban growth not only in Doha but also in other emerging cities.
