Understanding the challenges (barriers and limitations) of any capital flow in human settlements can lead to a more efficient use of that capital flow or improve its performance. Migrants’ remittances are known as one of the spatial investment flows in the settlements of Lamerd County. As one of such physical-spatial areas, Lamerd county settlements enjoy this capital flow. In this area and based on the previous researches of the authors of this paper, on one hand, the functions of this investment flow are negligible in economic sectors and economic activities and on the other hand, this investment flow does not follow spatial order and spatial planning approaches in the planning system. Therefore, using qualitative research method and based on grounded theory, this article seeks to understand the challenges of migrants' remittances from the standpoint of the interest community based on target sampling and the opinions of experts of organizations from the public and the private sectors as well as those of local elites and trustees. The results obtained from a three-step scientific coding in the grounded theory led to the extraction of 46 concepts, 17 broad categories, and finally 2 nuclear issues including “motivational obstacles and limitations of economic investment” and “structural-legal barriers and limitations of economic investment”. Having examined the causal conditions, the phenomenon, context, intervening conditions, strategies and outcomes of each of these nuclear categories, the phenomenon of “structural-motivated barriers” were defined as the focal challenge confronting migrants’ remittances in the economic development with planning approach in this physical-spatial field.
