In many countries, new towns are viewed as an alternative to the congestion and socioeconomic problems associated with overcrowding in the traditional urban centres. In Egypt, it is thought desirable to consider new towns as an instrument for the furthering of a national urban development policy. The present research is an attempt to discuss a critical question as "How successful has been the establishment of new towns in the desert land of Egypt". It also tries to highlight the constraints and potentials of such settlements within the Egyptian context and in the light of the national urban policy documents and socio-economic development.
