Spatial Development Policy of the Czech Republic


Spatial Development Policy of the Czech Republic (thereinafter, “SDP CR”) is a spatial planning instrument determining the requirements and frameworks for concretization of objectives of spatial planning in the nationwide, cross-border, and international contexts, with regard to sustainable development of the territory above all, and determines the strategy and basic pre-conditions for meeting these objectives. The SDP CR provides a framework for a consensual spatial development and evaluation of the CR territory (thereinafter, “spatial development”). To reach a necessary coordination of sectoral and intersectoral concepts, namely the planning documentation of regions and investment programmes (programme developments) having influence on the CR spatial development and which, by their importance, overpass the territory of a region (thereinafter, “investment programmes”) the SDP CR ensures, for this purpose, the cooperation of ministries, further central administration authorities and regions.
