The application of the study results is based on the fact that they complement the modern concepts of urbanism; allow us to consider the heterogeneous phenomena of the city development within the framework of social life, determining the influence of political factors. As a result of the study the following conclusion can be drawn: the definition and analysis of the socio-political aspects of modern urban practices make it possible to identify their social essence, the possibility of implementing specific models for the development of the urban environment, creating conditions for its safety and comfort, and improving the quality of human life.
