Metropolitan Governance and Strategies

Effective metropolitan governance is essential to the achievement of the better urban balance between metropolitan areas sought by the European Union as it extends to the wider Europe.

A sustainable approach to European metropolitan strategies will involve compact urban forms and mixed use, public transport orientated development focussed on city and town centres. A polycentric approach of this kind within metropolitan areas will also require effective metropolitan governance.
