The Municipal Unit of Pefka is an important  suburb of Thessaloniki, both because of its short time distance and due to its particular natural environment and the semi-mountainous peri-urban landscape of the area. The dominant use within the approved plan of the settlement is the dwelling, while on the main road axis of the settlement there are other uses of private education (tutorials), commercial etc. Sparsely in the settlement there are green areas, but also public utilities, which however need to be strengthened.
