dc.description.abstract The research reported in this paper identified indicators for sustainable planning of open areas in neighbourhoods. The research was performed in the new residential developments in Khartoum Town (El Riyadh (1972), Nasr Extension (1972) and El Mujahedeen 1988), compared to older neighbourhoods (Khartoum (2) (1950), El Diem (1953), and Alamarat (1958)). The research problem is that some of these areas are typically single-use residential areas, with small undeveloped open spaces and poor landscape design. The research is aiming to study the planning of open spaces in these neighbourhoods; collect, analyse and classify the data to find its impact on the development of open spaces. Then set guidelines to achieve well-used open spaces that can best serve the general public. The research was concerned with recognition of good practices that lead to sustainable development of open areas and promoting measurable development indicators such as index of sufficiency, accessibility, safety of the users and social-inclusion dimensions. The analysis focuses on some physical parameters of open spaces e.g. area, fencing, green coverage and types of facilities available(lighting), and some behavioural parameters i.e. type of activities, group of users, developers and managers of open spaces. The results confirmed a lack of a comprehensive development programs and reliable statistics for open spaces that leads to poor variety of outdoor activities. The research found that most of the successful examples of developed open areas of the surveyed neighbourhoods are managed by community groups (public participation). en_US
