Abstract: 
Research Objective: Valuing emerging identities outskirts registering requalification strategy spaces generated by the phenomenon of urban sprawl in a sustainable development perspective Today, mutations in which the city is subject engender the urban landscape degradation.In this context, development and planning procedures which codify the scales of intervention, strategic planning at the operational scope, were developed , without providing meaningful answers to the problem of controlling urban sprawl, or to produce spaces marked by quality. Furthermore, sustainable development policy tends to register urban development strategies in a qualitative approach that is based on the economic and environmental social triptych, but calls for the need of a device intended to refer to the context in s adapt to temporality and to unite the many dimensions of urban and timeframes to be able to spatialize these principles. Hence, their mobilization to try to develop strategies for reclaiming spaces dormant. Then manifests the need to promote the quality of the urban environment and calls for its requalification. In this context, development and planning procedures which codify the scales of intervention, strategic planning at the operational scope, were developed. So far they have not managed to make significant responses to the problem of regulation of urban sprawl or to produce spaces marked by quality and urbanity. The following questions arise: What are the mechanisms to regulate urban sprawl? How to update the settings to promote sustainable quality of the living environment in peri-urban areas? How to approach a multidisciplinary, multidimensional and multi scalar reflection on peri-urban areas for a sustainable redevelopment? To answer these questions, we adopt a methodology that crosses the SWOT method for a relevant diagnosis and issues appropriately identified and AMC method to evaluate the advantages of sustainability. Empirical verification will be done on a selected site. The results of our research will result in: 1. Radar charts that indicates the parameters that must be weighed 2. Quality Indicators
