Land-use change is a condition when the land has changed in terms of its use. The factor that can affect land-use change is distance and long-stay of the community. Its distance could make a land-use change from the rivers and roads. Land-use change can affect the livelihoods of the local community. This study aimed to evaluate the way land is changed in Tanjung Village, from 2011 to 2017, and its impact on the livelihoods of local communities. At each predetermined sample point, we collected data by interview and direct observation. Determination of sample points using a buffer analysis on satellite imagery. Respondents were selected using the accidental sampling method. To illustrate how urban land functions have changed in Tanjung Village and analyze their impact on livelihoods using spatial descriptive comparative purposes. This research shows that there has been a land-use change in Tanjung Village that is influenced by a physical factor, which is the distance from the rivers and roads, not by a social factor, which is the long stay of the community. Distance from the river 0-100 meters serves as a buffer space ecosystem. Human activity and distance from the river are more than 100 meters the supply of irrigation water to the paddy fields decreases due to high pump costs that can affect the higher chance of land-use change. Land-use change also affects the livelihoods of the local community. 47% of the respondents claimed to have side jobs.
