Gated Communities are a powerful idea that has the potentiality to make deeper changes in social and spatial fabric our cities. They showed a wide spread in all local, Arabia and international levels, which raise an important question, Do Gated Communities introduce a better solution that can solve the problem of GCR new towns or not?. From the first look, the answer seems yes, comparing Gated Communities with contemporary good urban form theories of development, tell that according to their physical appearance, they share many features. Some argue that both respond to the same fears and concerns about the contemporary city; both reflect a popular search for civility, character, and authenticity in the urban environment and a reliance on surveillance for social control in the contemporary city (Christopherson 1994).
So residents, planners, developers, and authority thought that changing urban form from open to gated could be a solution for contemporary problems, like safety, sense of community and other. This research argue that Gated Communities rather than be the solution it become part of the problem. Gated Communities socio-spatial characteristics cause a number of development problems and negative impacts on the social and spatial fabric of new Egyptian cities. The purpose of this research is to examine the contribution of Gated Communities to urban development with especial reference to GCR new towns.
