Urban dimension of EU policies should be stronger

On Wednesday June 17th,  the European Parliament’s Committee on Regional Development voted unanimously  in favour of intensified works on urban dimension in EU policies.


Members of the URBAN Intergroup in the European Parliament have been working for more stressed and harmonized urban dimension of EU policies for years now. We are happy to observe a debate on this issue on the European level which was initiated last year by the European Commission by launching public consultation on the EU Urban agenda. The rapporteur on “Urban dimension of EU policies” is Kerstin Westphal (S&D/Germany), member of the Intergroup.


“I hope that finally, these works will lead to creation of European urban policy, thus a European policy for towns and cities” said Jan Olbrycht, president of the URBAN Intergroup and EPP shadow rapporteur on this report.


The report adopted today by the Committee on Regional Development is the EP’s contribution to the ongoing debate on the so-called EU Urban agenda. It is also a response to the European Commission’s communication on that matter published last year. MEPs advocate in this document for the creation of an Urban Agenda, which eventually would turn up into an EU urban policy. They also urge the EC to better coordinate EU policies and instruments of the urban dimension, to introduce territorial impact assessments for new legislation and to implement a multi-level management model and the principle of partnership.
