Evaluation of the Lower Austrian Spatial Planning Act

The Lower Austrian Spatial Planning Act regulates procedures and thematic issues for spatial planning on a local and regional scale. It has been amended several times since it came into force in 1976 in order to meet the ongoing changes in spatial needs. Even nowadays Lower Austria has to react to this process of change. This evaluation identifies issues with high need for action from a supra-regional perspective and gives recommendations for a revised Spatial Planning Act.
