This chapter provides an overview of the processes and recent trends of strategic planning in Europe. It re-examines strategic planning by highlighting the differences between it and traditional land-use planning. It discusses the “new” strategic spatial planning, the four-track operationalized framework, and the type of governance suitable for transformative practices. Finally, it introduces four types of strategic projects which provide a key to an action-oriented approach: urban projects, rural projects, new innovative development, and network-like projects.
