Abstract: This article explains how and why strategic spatial planning in Flanders has gone through some important transformations in the last twenty years. To do this, it relates spatial planning and its tools to some major societal changes. It first explains some of the complexities of this interplay from a theoretical point of view and argues for a socio-political and co-evolutionary perspective on planning tools. The article then provides some empirical evidence, exploring Flemish planning tools in general and strategic spatial planning more specifically. Although not evident at first sight, it appears that both the tools and the socio-political position of Flemish strategic spatial planning have changed. This poses some major challenges in rehabilitating spatial plannning tools and repositioning spatial planning in Flanders.
