As justice is one of the Islamic principal beliefs and the Islamic Republic of Iran claims obeying them, it is relevant to investigate how much these principals are regarded in implementing urban plans in Iran. This study helps to make better understanding of coincidence of professional urban planning by not only scientific findings but also by one of the Islamic principals in Iran. In this paper, the variable of “dealing with ownership rights”, in implementing urban plans consider as representative variable of justice. The new plan of Shohada square in Mashhad, the second largest city of Iran (after Tehran) is implementing in the area of 23 hectares by the investment of 250 million US dollars is considered as a case study. In gathering information, field study method is used, and some of the official documents are reviewed. These documents are related to land acquisition process. These documents consist of some complaint letters from land owners and the responses from executive management of the project. The documents were analyzed according to the content analysis method. According to acquisition process, the justice is ignored, because the condition of local residents is not going to be better if it not become worse. It seems that the major problem is the unsuitable current laws. This article is trying to evaluate the relevant laws and suggest some amendments to guarantee the land owners participation in planning and implementing process.
