Abstract. The lack of appropriate spatial planning methods in developing countries such as Iran has led to the isolation and separation of some informal settlements from the main cities. In most cases, an Integrated Spatial Planning Framework has not been provided to integrate informal settlements into the main cities. One of these settlements is called “Komb” which is located in Chabahar in the southeast of Iran. This settlement was separated from the main city and it has grown into a slum. This article aims to use an integrated spatial planning framework to connect and integrate this settlement with the main city. To achieve this goal, “integrated spatial planning framework” approach has been used including four levels as follows: city, neighborhood, neighborhood units, and land pieces. The results indicate that this approach is a suitable and practical model to connect the informal settlement of Komb to the main city of Chabahar.
