Questioning the Place of Agriculture in Strategic Spatial Planning Documents: Three Cities in Western Europe

Abstract : In the context of Western Europe, we see two prominent shifts in the arena of planning. The first one is that the city planning authorities have embraced strategic spatial planning as an overarching instrument to construct visions for the future and to pave the way to reach there. Secondly, there is an increasing awareness of the multi-functionality of agriculture which reveals that agriculture holds benefit for urban dwellers. This research is built from the convergence of these two debates and investigates the place of agriculture in strategic spatial planning documents of Western Europe. Exploring the documents of three cities to identify the reasons why agriculture has been included and the extent to which it has been integrated, this research evaluates these findings against evidence from a thorough literature review on the subject. Conclusions are drawn for each individual case and then widened to the larger context of Western Europe.
