Abstract

Currently, the issue of a sense of belonging is one of the important axes in increasing the participation of villagers and improving the planning process in these areas. The feeling of belonging to the village reflects the positive mental feeling of people towards living in these areas. The purpose of this study is to identify the effects of the feeling of spatial belonging in four dimensions (emotional, behavioral, cognitive and functional belonging) in the process of villagers' participation in the preparation, implementation and maintenance of the master plan. The present study is applied in terms of purpose and descriptive-analytical in nature. The method of data collection is library and field (questionnaire). The statistical population of the present study included the villages of Chir, Glabersafli, Chesb and Sarmasaghloo. Morgan table was used to determine the statistical sample. The number of samples required to complete the questionnaire was equal to 384 samples and the questionnaires were completed using a simple random sampling method. Descriptive statistics and inferential statistics (one-sample t-test, chi-square agreement table, Kruskal-Wallis and route analysis model) were used to analyze the collected data. In the master plan, it is related to the components of functional belonging and cognitive belonging. Analysis of inferential findings of t-test also shows that based on the level of desirability of the test (3) and the level of significance of the status of the four dimensions, the feeling of spatial belonging in the desired situation is evaluated. The highest level of desirability is related to cognitive belonging to facilities.
