Spatial planning plays an important role in shaping places and cities in which people live and work. As planning affects the lives of people, it is obvious that people should be involved in the planning process. Based on a complex planning process in the Northern Fringe of Brussels, this paper discusses firstly the data exchange on projects between two Belgian regions: the Project Monitor. Within this initiative a visual overview is given on all the running projects in this cross-border area. Secondly, it discusses the use and the results of an online public consultation tool. This online territorial consultation tool has been developed in order to let inhabitants and users of the Northern Fringe of Brussels express their opinion on the area. The goal of this initiative is to gather local (territorial) knowledge and to involve and get people enthusiastic about the TOP project. An online consultation has been started where people can indicate on a map which areas within the Northern Fringe of Brussels they like, and which ones they think need a little work. This paper will discuss the results of the online consultation which has been open from the 6th of November 2014 until the 15th of January 2015. Finally, it investigates how an interactive tool can enhance the collaboration between stakeholders.
