The paper aimed to expand and elaborate the possibilities of applying the concept of an "urban village" on abounded and devastated industrial areas in Banja Luka. Since 1980s, this concept has become one of the planning discourses and experienced a variety of forms, both in theoretical and practical form. In the initial stages of its implementation, only greenfield - previously undeveloped sites were considered. Those newly-built settlements were symbolically called a 'greenville'. In the later stages, the urban village concept has adopted the principles of sustainable development and its application on brownfield sites has been started. However, this improved concept of an "urban village" became a strategic issue in UK and worldwide, as well as a part of the main strategical and urban documents for the planning of the cities and towns.
