  • œ
  • spatial planningâ€
  • 
  • is here interrogated
  • both in the context the European Union and the us. To do so
  • the author mulls over some ideas about â€
  • ˜
  • planningâ€
  • prompted by the complexities of eu meta-territorial policies and national/local land use regulation
  • on one side
