Example text

Such ‘spatial positioning’ – the term having been coined by Dick Williams – is an important element of strategic spatial planning. In line with Dutch policies towards European integration – the Dutch were amongst its most ardent proponents – the planning elite engaged foreign colleagues in discussions. This is what Chapter 1 ‘Planners going international’ is about. The Spaak Report, named after the Belgian foreign minister Paul-Henri Spaak, laid the foundations for the Treaty of Rome. There was recognition that the removal of customs barriers, one of the main aims of what was quickly dubbed the Common Market, would change geography to the detriment of some and the advantage of others.

The next chapter shows that Dutch planners tried, but often to no avail. CHAPTER 2 DASHED EXPECTATIONS THE TREATY OF ROME The restriction to purely economic matters is, however, insufficient. Man’s life is … determined and influenced by many more factors than solely by economic ones … . 1 These lines by the chief planner of North Rhine-Westphalia, Norbert Ley, in the Festschrift for Jasper Vink at the occasion of his retirement express the widely held view amongst European top planners that the EEC should engage in spatial planning.

Dutch urban designers were of course involved in the Congrès Internationaux d’Architecture Moderne (CIAM).

Nowadays, collections of norms and standards are common in planning. A 1936 International Planning Congress in Paris specifically discussed national planning.
