    'Gebiedsontwikkeling’ (area development or regional development) is an approach in the regional planning that in 2006 by the Minister of housing, spatial planning and environment on main lines was described in the ‘Nota Ruimte’ (VROM, 2006a). This approach builds on, inter alia, environmental planning and adds in particular broad participation to it as response to a – by ever scarcer space and difficulties in decision-making processes – failing spatial development.
    The basic characteristics for ‘gebiedsontwikkeling’ are in accordance with the ‘Nota Ruimte’: integral development as a joint process of complementary parties, which seek to improve the spatial quality, through the implementation and financing of a number of related spatial projects. All governments, civil society organizations, citizens and market operators are particularly encouraged to think along and join to come to area-specific and widely supported regional and local visioning and implementation of policies (VROM, 2006a, p. 12). In addition, in the ‘Nota Ruimte’ emphasized dynamics and the reference to civil society we can see as essential features.
    The central question in this research is:
    What conditions must there be to determine the concept of gebiedsontwikkeling' regarding integration, participation, cooperation and creativity and what areas should be paid attention to in concrete cases with the approach so that optimal results can be achieved?
