Since the early 1990s, when political changes swept through Central and Eastern Europe, it has become less appropriate to label Austria as a bridgehead. The task ahead, not only for Austria, but for the EU as a whole, is to promote cooperation along the 'European Prosperity Edge'. New spatial planning concepts, tools and methods must be developed which can address less stable political structures. The ESDP can play a key role in this, due to the open, non-binding nature of its principles. Work must therefore begin on a spatial planning perspective with a manageable number of partners, particularly with respect to the situation in Central and Eastern Europe.
