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.
