The aim of this study was to evaluate land use and regulation criteria of one of the serviced plots projects for low-income group in Amman, implemented by the Housing and Urban Development Corporation (HUDC), Tabarbour1 Project/ Marka District. The study used descriptive and quantitative methods to analyze collected data; a questionnaire was distributed of a sample of 47 households, (25% of the total built residential plots in the project). The researchers evaluated the project in terms of the land use and regulation criteria implemented in the project. The opinions of the study sample about the resulted built environment after implementing these criteria were studied. The study concluded that this project achieved an important goal of the residents, which is the plot ownership, and building a house by the owner that grows with the increasing needs of his family. The residents preferred this type of housing projects than the ready built apartment projects. The study suggested some changes on the regulation criteria of the project, to solve some problems that people face, and to improve the planning of future similar housing projects
