ABSTRACT
All cities have an organic growth over time and our goal is to see in whose expense this expansion occcurs. Land-use changes indicate the urban penetration limits in rural space and the manifestation form of territorial evolution. In order to obtain a more accurate analysis, at local level, we chose to work at an adequate scale for the case study proposed. In order to highlight the transformations from the metropolitan area of Suceava, we used the topographic plans 1:5000 (1980) and the 2012 ortophotoplan. We tried to conceive a nomenclature compatible with Corine Land Cover data, eliminating the mixed classes. The land-use categories were outlined in detail, in order to achieve the purpose of the study, respectively, emphasizing the transformations caused by the expansion of built-up space, through monitorig the evolution of classes. The data interpretation has played an important role in our research, being introduced additional natural factors, as slopes, proximity to natural areas and others, that favor or restrict residential development, for more complex analysis of the results. In the metropolitan area of Suceava, about 1,500 hectares have been converted into built-up space (residential, commercial and industrial), the classes most affected by these changes, being those in the agricultural sphere. Scheia Commune is the most dynamic in this respect, surpassing Suceava City, in terms of land-use changes into residential built-up space, which brings out the intensity of periurbanisation process on its territory.

Keywords: urban expansion, land-use change, post-socialist, Suceava City, spatio-temporal dynamics
