The location of filling stations in urban and suburban regions has become commonplace due to increase in urbanization and rising energy demands. Given the possible environmental, safety, and aesthetic effects, it is now more important than ever to ensure these enterprises adhere to the approved planning standard. This study’s goal is to evaluates filling station compliance with planning requirements using geospatial tools, consisting of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing, and spatial analysis methods. These tools play a critical role in this assessment by offering comprehensive insights into spatial linkages, conformity rate, and environmental implications based on the spatial data gathered and planning regulations. As a way to assess whether filling stations correspond to predetermined planning requirements, this study employed the practical application of geospatial technology which include geospatial data and regulatory requirements in this system, this improves assessment accuracy while streamlining decision-making procedures and promoting sustainable urban development. The results highlight the value of utilizing geospatial techniques to assess factors including spatial organization, safety, and accessibility in filling station setups. In view of this strategy, having 65% of filling stations complied with the requisite 400-meter distance from neighboring stations and 35% filling stations do not adhere to the required 9-meter buffer from highways out of other results, potentially posing safety risks and causing accidents. This will help to maximize urban planning effectiveness, resulting in safer and more sustainable urban environments.
