Short Summary "Spatial planning is the systematic and proactive overall design of a given area in relation to its building development on the one hand and for the preservation of largely undeveloped areas on the other hand." This definition together with the finding of the Constitutional Court concerning the determination of competences, makes the spatial planning in Austria a cross-sectional matter, whereby individual specialist competences (mining, railways, forestry, road traffic law, water rights) are reserved for the Federal Government, the general spatial planning falls within the exclusive competence of the provinces (subsidiary general competence). The provincial governments (regional spatial planning) and the municipalities (local spatial planning) are responsible for the implementation of the general land use planning.
