  Spatial planning - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Spatial planning refers to the methods used by the public sector to influence the distribution of people and activities in spaces of various scales.
Spatial planning includes all levels of land use planning including urban planning, regional planning, national spatial plans, and in the European Union international levels.
The concept of spatial planning is not native to English-speaking countries, making the term an example of Euro-English.

 spatial planning - ESPON
"Spatial planning refers to the methods used largely by the public sector to influence the future distribution of activities in space.
Spatial planning embraces measures to co-ordinate the spatial impacts of other sector policies, to achieve a more even distribution of economic development between regions than would otherwise be created by market forces, and to regulate the conversion of land and property uses." (European Commission 1997, Compendium of European Spatial Planning Systems, p.24)
Spatial development strategies have been prepared or are under preparation in Wales, Northern Ireland and London.

 Environmental protection in Germany and the specific role of spatial planning - An introduction
Therefore the plan is finally politically approved by the responsible assembly (a municipal master plan is approved by the town parliament; the regional plan by the Regional Assembly and the State development plan by the State parliament).
Since regional planning is executed by planning associations which are composed mainly of the municipalities and talukas of the planning region (normally the district) they have direct influence on the results of this planning level.
Planning the use of resources such as land or water in the sense of providing a commonly acceptable framework for their allocation and use is executed within a system hat is horizontally and vertically differentiated.

 Modelling and Supporting Multi-Actor Spatial Planning using Multi-Agents Systems
Spatial planning is nowadays an extremely sensitive issue, especially in Europe, where old traditional settlements, high population densities within some critical areas, and complex political influences and relations, lead to a situation of permanent crisis regarding the use and destiny of lands.
As we stated before, spatial planning is a multi-actor process which cannot be separated from its social context, and which consists in the construction and exchange of representations of the space and project between the actors.
The choice was motivated both by the accuracy of MRAS for complex spatial problem solving, because of the structural analogy of the problem and its processing (Ferrand, 1995), and by the fitness of the MRAS model to the mental declarative models used by the experts.

A fundamental trait in the spatial organisation of the USSR was the gigantism of construction projects, of regional economic development programmes for the new regions, or of reconstruction of the older populated regions.
Spatial planning in Europe has two characteristics: it is the work of an elite, and this elite has a tendency to reproduce existing spatial structures.
The planning elite in Europe - a sum of national planning elites - is inaccessible, over-specialised, and dependent on academic snobbery.

 COMPENDIUM OF SPATIAL PLANNING SYSTEMS IN THE BALTIC SEA REGION COUNTRIES
Examination of the planning systems on a comparative basis was to deliver information on the laws and regulations valid in the VASAB countries and provide access to best practices and ideas with potential benefit to those preparing, amending and complementing their legal acts.
The tasks of comprehensive plans prepared at different administrative levels are not diiferencated in the law, the variations in the degree of detail/generalisation in the plans of different levels are relatively smaller than in other VASAB countries.
Aspects related to Lithuanian planning system required explanation here as the nature of the system is not revealed clearly enough in the text and particularly in the summarizing tables reflecting a slightly different system and therefore causing the characteristics of Lithuania to have been “squeezed in” there.

 Proposals on Transport: Spatial Planning :issued by the National Competitiveness Council (NCC)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The purpose of spatial planning is to promote balanced regional development that is consistent with maximisation of national economic potential and the maintenance of scarce environmental resources.
Spatial planning can contribute to more effective use of scarce resources, curtailing pressures of congestion and “overheating” in urban areas and helping to achieve higher living and environmental standards.
National and regional spatial planning needs to achieve a high-degree of co-ordination of existing government policies and activities across a broad spectrum of responsibilities including land use, housing, roads, public transport, social, cultural and recreational infrastructure and attraction of internationally mobile investment.

Recognizing the particular character of European planning is also important to master key terms such as "susbsidiarity" and "competency", created by the new language "Euro-English" to share concept arising from different languages and experiences and whose spatial planning refers too.
For the USA, where a national master plan doesn't exist to address territorial development at a Union scale, it is interesting that the EU despite not being a federal republic yet (still only hypothetical about the juridical and institutional form of the present consortium of European states) already promotes common territorial development aims.
In the last chapter Andreas Faludi revisits the theme of the relationship between spatial planning and European integration having as a reference the existent literature and suggesting an agenda for reflections and research on the European spatial planning.

 Oswestry Borough Council - Spatial Planning - A Definition
In PPS 12 the ODPM suggests that: 'Local planning authorities should adopt a spatial planning approach to local development frameworks to ensure the most efficient use of land by balancing competing demands within the context of sustainable development,' (ODPM, 2004, pp3).
PPS 12 goes on to define spatial planning thus 'Spatial planning goes beyond traditional land use planning to bring together and integrate policies for the development and use of land with other policies and programmes which influence the nature of places and how they function.
Therefore it is evident that spatial planning moves focus from a land-use planning approach based on regulation and control of land, to a wider more far ranging approach that aims to ensure the best use of land by assessing competing demands.

The overall goal of this research programme is to further the emergence of a European spatial planning policy.

In so doing we highlight where conflicts might arise in spatial policies, as when a region is a beneficiary of European funds (-18%) but a net contributor at a national level (+22%) and roughly equal to surrounding regions (+7%).

 ESPON — European Spatial Planning Observation Network
At the meeting of EU spatial planning Ministers at Echternach in December 1997, a two-year pilot project on European Spatial Planning (SPESP) was set up as a pilot action under Article 10 of the Structural Funds in co-operation between the EU Member States and the European Commission.
The role of the ECP is to represent the UK's policy oriented research community, to act as a central node for a national network of spatial research; and to help raise the level of knowledge in the UK on spatial planning research and practice.
The development of the concept of a European Spatial Planning Observation Network started with a general concern among EU Member States and the Commission that there was a lack of knowledge and research in the field of spatial development from a European perspective.
