One of the land development problems of developing countries is to provide readily available land for new urbanization demands. Compensation based procedures are mostly used land provision methods around the world in urban land development applications but it is both expensive and mandatory. To provide new settlements and built-up areas, there should be a more effective land redistribution process. Land readjustment is one of the land development tools in the developing world to help deal with urbanization requirements. It has great abilities in solving land-use problems in urban areas when new and redesigned urban settlements are needed. Providing regular urban land development process many land readjustment implementations have been practiced in Turkey. Particularly, municipalities are used the process to supply public-uses areas rather than land compensation. In this paper, first, land acquisition methods in Turkey are briefly reviewed, then land readjustment method and its apllications are discussed with its current issues for regular urban developments
