Abstract The purpose of this study is a review of urban growth containment policies for the guidance and control of peri-urbanization. The review of selected resources illustrates two policies: "urban growth containment policies based on planning interventions (UGCPI)" and "urban growth containment policies based on financial interventions (UGCFI)". The analysis of these policies reveals their distinct effects inside and outside the metropolitan boundaries, which, despite the positive results, create various practical consequences and challenges. This highlights the necessity of a special framework of growth guidance and control of peri-urbanization in response to the consequences and challenges of previous policies. The proposed framework is based on the four fundamental components, including regular growth, continuous activity interactions, optimal performance, and institutional capacity building that integration between them can make it possible to guide changes during the time. Certainly, the consequence of such an approach is the regular functional and structural landscape of peri-urban areas in the twenty-first century.
