This volume is based on a series of field studies carried out within the framework of the research project EURABANET. This project focused on four polycentric urban regions in the North Western Metropolitan Area in Europe and has explored the practical value of this kind of region as a planning concept.

Special emphasis was put on the possible contribution of this concept to the strengthening of the territorial competitiveness and quality of life in these regions. Besides, the project also focused on the role of polycentric urban regions in the transnational planning process. This volume deals with the questions of the value and the feasibility and the design of a regional perspective rather than separate local perspectives of spatial planning in polycentric urban configurations.

These questions are explored in the Randstad, Rheinruhr, the Flemish Diamond and Central Scotland. EURABANET was one of the almost fifty projects for transnational co-operation in spatial planning that were executed under the umbrella of the North Western Metropolitan Area Operational Program. This program was part of INTERREG IIC, a Community Initiative to promote transnational cooperation among public bodies and private parties from different countries through projects on regional and local issues.

INTERREG IIC was co-financed by the European Commission. EURABANET was carried out by a consortium of five academic research institutes from the four countries where the regions of research are located.
