CONTROLLING THE AUTOMOBILE DEPENDENCY THROUGH SPATIAL PLANNING IN A CROSS-BORDER CONTEXT. THE WALLOON REGION CASE

Abstract : The limitation of road traffics and automobile dependency represents a strategic objective for the authorities of many countries and regions. Within this framework, the planners have proposed the project of the « environment-friendly compact city », aiming to contain the developments of the urbanisation on sites accessible by alternatives to motorised mobility. In regards to the strong development of international and transregional daily mobilities, this article aims to study a theme still little prospected by planning research: the environment-friendly compact city in a transborder context. Our work was focused on Wallonia and its neighbouring regions, with an analysis of the regional master plans. This exercise shows, in relation to the competitions between regions and to the difficult organization of public transport, how much a transborder context causes difficulties to contain urban forms and limit automobile dependency.
