Developers are facing problems to obtain sustainable solutions for development activities. It has been observed that new development activities meeting the needs of the society have potential to damage environment. The cities are expanding rapidly and have created a greater demand for vehicles and in result, require more fuel for consumption. A petrol station is the place meeting this fuel needs. A petrol station is important, but in the meantime, it is a dangerous installation so special attention is required for site selection of such development projects. The adequacy of existing approaches to land does not meet all the environmental consequences. Therefore, this study presents the concept of ground-based suitability analysis using Geographic Information System (GIS) for find the suitable land to install petrol station. This would be an effective approach to site selection, which will incorporate all the key environmental selection factors suggested by different codes to take into account in site selection for petrol station practice. This ground-based aptitude can also be extended to other development projects in the future.
