The aim of this paper is to determine an urban model for Kırıkkale city according to the sustainable urban development potentials and dynamics. This model is dependent on the many planning decisions which include the assessment of ecological potentials, the foundation of urban open–green system and also the reorganization of the neigbourhoods in the city as the clusters.

This paper focused on Kırıkkale city which is at an early stage for sustainable urban models in Turkey, but this paper also contributes towards the debate and study of sustainable urban models in Turkish towns according to the methodology. Keywords: sustainability, urban development, urban model, Kırıkkale.
