With the aim to provide an [[integrated]], multi-sectoral and indicative [[strategy]] for the [[spatial development]], the key ideas of ESDP are:  
 
 
 
* an integrated approach - Not just to look at specific sectors of development activity (e.g. environment, economic development, or transport), but to recognise that they all affect each other;
 
 
 
* spatial development - a much wider view of the development, vital for integrative approach;
 
 
 
* strategic aspects - interlinked actions to achieve balanced and sustainable territorial development;
 
 
 
* indicative views - the responsibility lies with the developed regions and territories to implement the development principals.
 
 
 
 
 
== Spatial policy guidelines ==
 
# Development of a polycentric and balanced urban system, and strengthening of the partnership between urban and rural areas, so as to create a new urban-rural relationship.
 
# Promotion of integrated transport and communication concepts, which support the polycentric development of the EU territory, so that there is gradual progress towards parity of access to infrastructure and knowledge.
 
# Wise management of the natural and cultural heritage, which will help conserve regional identities and cultural diversity in the face of globalisation.
