The Street corridors are nowadays one of the most important components of urban space. As one element of the street, pedestrian plays significant role of enhancing and sustaining the quality of an urban space. As an important element of urban form, street function serves as social space, commercial space, cultural space, as well as channels of movements. It is therefore very important to study and propose that how these corridors could be maintained or adapted for future reference and uses. It is also important to understand the underlying principles and design in order to be modified and adapted to new and future settlements. In the process of change, existing situation will be modified to meet new uses of these corridors. It was frequently found that many traces of the existing characteristics are erased. This situation is of loss to the place where traditional built environment is replaced by new with very little sense of continuity from their past situation, depriving the place of its roots and hence their sense of place. The corridors are directly related to the history and culture of the people living in the town. The study established on the significant role of public active street corridors as prerequisite for creating urban livable environments. Therefore it is important to record and determine the urban pattern as well as the character of the urban space of the street corridor for future references.
