Today, here in Flanders and all over the world, hierarchical approaches are making way for network approaches. Processes are being redesigned, relationships are being redefined and local administrations are being given more autonomy. In Flanders, this means that new expectations are being created between the Government of Flanders, the 5 provinces and the 308 cities and municipalities. The purpose of this paper is to show how ‘Ruimte Vlaanderen’, the Spatial Policy Department for the Government of Flanders, is taking a pole position in this shifting approach and how intergovernmental partnership is currently taking shape in urban planning.
