Community policies and spatial planning
In this report, the European Commission services are seeking to highlight
the importance of the territorial dimension in the implementation of Community
policies. Drafted within the framework of reflection on the first draft
of the European Spatial Development Perspective (ESDP), it forms part
of the initiative to examine the future implications of territorial issues
at European level.
The first part of the report sets out the background to the debate on
European spatial planning, and tries to assess the initial political implications
of such an exercise, whilst the second presents in a more detailed manner
the ways in which various Community policies impact on the spatial development
of the Union.
