Today, cities have faced many challenges in the economic, social and ecological fields, at the same time, the increase in population along with the ever-increasing rate of urbanization has brought harmful consequences for cities. Urban regeneration policy is a new approach in the process of renovating problematic urban structures. The approach of urban liveability, in parallel with sustainable development, seeks to create a sustainable environment in social, economic, bio-environmental, managerial, physical and equal life opportunities for all city residents. ; Therefore, the current research was carried out with the aim of investigating the regeneration of worn-out fabric with an emphasis on urban liveability indicators. The research method is descriptive-correlation. In the current research, the target community in part of the study and analysis in this research is the residents of Marvdasht city. Morgan's table has been used to determine the sample size; Therefore, according to Morgan's table and the unlimited size of the population, the sample is 384 people. And the questionnaires were distributed among the people of the society based on non-random sampling. The data collection tool is the standard questionnaires of regeneration and urban liveability indicators. The validity of the questionnaires was obtained in terms of content and the reliability of the questionnaires was determined through Cronbach's alpha coefficient. For data analysis, factor analysis and structural equation modelling were used using SSPPSS and Smart PPLS software. The results of the research showed that there is a relationship between social, economic, management, environmental and physical indicators and the viability of the historical context.
