Abstract

In the frame of the European Union’s enlargement and in the search for new more cohesive and functional standards for “administrative-spatial shapes†– under the pre-conditions of competitiveness, efficiency of urban and regional development and abolition of regional inequalities for sustainable development, - noteworthy is the examination of the reconstruction of the administrative system of Regions through the introduction of the proposed institution of the broader region in Greece. In the present article, we present the needs of the above administrative reconstruction, we investigate the economic form and the land-planning determination of the broader region; we set the directive lines towards the formation of its developmental pattern, while not omitting provisions with regards to the development impacts upon the natural environment. The final administrative shape which will be adaptable to the particular conditions of each broader region will contribute substantially, to the viable or sustainable development and to the worthy to be experienced development. Fundamental question among others is the formation of an administrative shape with explicit answers on the optimization of the European cooperation. Case study of the present article constitutes the proposed broader region of Epirus- Macedonia -Thrace, given the important influence that will exert one such organizational department on the Balkan country and on the European Union and vice versa. The example of the proposed broader region constitutes a characteristic case of an administrative reconstruction, with the parallel objective of rearrangement and upgrade of vital issues of spatial, environmental, socioeconomic and developmental importance.
