F1b Spatial Planning


Spatial planning is a public task based on a mission enshrined in the Federal Constitution. It is not a self-contained discipline, but includes numerous specialist areas and areas of application which must be linked and coordinated. Spatial planning performs a broad cross-sectional function in the coordination of different interests and demands. It has to implement this within the framework of democratic rules and with the legally available planning means.
