Montpellier SCOT, France

From strategy to site briefs

In France a new generation of sub-regional strategies – SCOTs (Schéma de Cohérence Territoriale) have been developed since 2004. Montpellier SCOT provides a cross-scale and cross-sectoral policy and delivery framework for Montpellier conurbation. It includes spatial policy at different spatial scales, including:

  • conurbation-wide plans focusing on management and conservation of the strategic environmental, economic and social assets
  • more detailed spatial plans for six sub-areas of the conurbation at 1:25,000 scale
  • a design guide for local planning, including guidance for preparing urban projects, local plans and street design standards
  • design briefs for eleven strategic sites, to demonstrate the application of the SCOT principles in the range of different contexts found in the conurbation.
