What is a strategic plan?

  1. It is a political, long-range programme for territorial development: it is neither a “wish list”, nor an urban planning instrument imposing restrictions or constraints on the territory.

  2. It is a flexible territorial governance instrument, already “tested” by several European cities and territories, aimed to direct and coordinate local development policies.

  3. It maintains continuity with the programs, projects, processes and policies already operating on the territory, coordinating and enhancing them and giving them a wider and shared perspective

  4. It is a territorial growth and renewal platform, involving the cultural, environmental, social and economic aspects of an area in the implementation of an endogenous and sustainable development process.

  5. It is the result of a negotiation between public and private stakeholders, who work together to define a common development path, find out strategic goals and commit resources to achieve them.

  6. It is an auto-promotional instrument for public administrations, helping them achieve and effectively manage funds for local development.


iNExTstudio believes that all components and stakeholders of a particular area should contribute to the design of local development strategies. Thus, it employs a 360° approach, called “Lego Method” (read more).

iNExTstudio guides local authorities and stakeholders through a collective growth process, by supporting the creation of organisations to manage sustainable development programmes (read more).

iNExTstudio helps urban and rural areas to develop into zero emission territories, by promoting, for example:

  1. the refurbishment of existing buildings and the regeneration of dilapidated areas

  2. the preservation of natural assets and resources

  3. the attention to the environmental impacts of human activities (including agriculture, tourism, etc.)

  4. the introduction of quality management processes

  5. the rationalization of mobility and the optimization of existing infrastructural assets

  6. the attention to the quality of settlements (public services, parks, transports, etc.) and to quality of life in general

  7. the improvement of education and vocational training and the establishment of capacity building processes, as essential requirements for socioeconomic development.
