Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The urban planning process is the base to land use changes and the support to human activities. By acting in the management of the territory, at environmental, economic and social levels, it brings up the possibility to satisfy the population needs and promote conformity between the stakeholders. The planning process is a privileged tool to operationalize the sustainable development principles. Therefore it is needed to create an operative methodology to achieve an efficient Sustainable Planning Process, interfering in both temporal and territorial scales, and finding the right balance between the sustainability factors. It is proposed a theory model that leads to the Sustainable Planning Process, and also its practical appliance to the case study ÂCasas de Sto. António, located in the Barreiro municipality, and integrated in Lisbon Metropolitan Area. It is demonstrated how the process can be operationalized, by presenting the verified results of its implementation in the study area.
