From engineering geological mapping on scale 1:10 000 and geotechnical investigations carried out in urban area of Berati town was found that two zones are threated from landslides phenomenon. The first one is located in center part, whereas the second in northeast part of Berati urban area. Mass movements occurred in the studied area are present in rocks topple, rocks fall and earth slide types. Rock falls and topple occur on steep slopes of fractured lime-stone rock, whereas the earth slides are found on medium-steep slopes that are built from soils and weathered flysch rocks. From mass movements occurrences many buildings and urban roads are demolished, thus endangering human life. In these conditions a detailed engineering geological study was undertaken to determine landslide distributions and recognize the stable and unstable areas. Also, based on these studies suggestions and recommendations are given for urban development and remedial measures.
