Today non-urbanised areas in metropolitan contexts are the most unstable places in the community and the most affected by transformation processes. Agricultural areas, those abandoned and uncultivated and fragments of woods can be reconsidered in new urban planning in the light of new uses for land which can combine peripheral urban agricultural production with examples of use and protection of the environment oriented towards strategies for adaptation to climatic change and the production of ecosystem services. A review of urban planning instruments in the city of Mascalucia presented an opportunity to propose a new scenario for land-use in non-urbanised areas by means of a land suitability model in which combined land cover analysis and fragmentation analysis were applied.
