Abstract

 Because of rapid and excessive expansion of cities in recent decades, urban land use has been the focus of attention of many geographers.In Iran, Tehran as capital of the country and its municipal zone 6 as the city s backbone and centre of administrative and commercial activities CBD has been of particular importance. The aim of the present study has been to investigate the cause and effect of tremendous changes that have taken place in this zone. The method adopted in this research has been analytical intersection and spatial analyst and the main source of information has been 1995 census reports plus cadastral maps of that time and their com prison with those of the present.The results of the study have indicated considerable changes in land use over the past fifteen years, as shown below: the total land area devoted to human settlement in 1985 being some 754.13 hats. Has been reduced to 679. 25 hats In 2010 whereas the area under CBD being 167.78 hats. In 1985 has increased to 213.80 hats in 2010 itself indicating the extent of change of human settlement land to none human settlement namely various kinds of business activities.A study of the population of the zone in the same period shows clearly that none settlement and none permanent (floating) population has been increasing, particularly in the middle sections the zone. Thus briefly speaking the interchange of permanent and none permanent population has created numerous difficulties for the zone such as traffic, air pollution, none coherent appearance, none accessibilities, city traffic project, rise of land price, loss of identity, reduction of resident population etc. etc.
