Throughout the year 2013, the Government of Aragon, through the General direction of spatial planning, has been progressing in the writing of the first draft of the strategy of spatial development of Aragon (EOTA), in accordance with the provisions of law 4/2009 of 22 June, of management of the territory of Aragón (LOTA). The EOTA has to be the instrument of territorial planning that allows you to design, from a strategic perspective and in close collaboration with agents that Act on the territory, the model's use and transformation of the Aragonese territory in the short, medium and long term (Aragon 2025).

The main objective is to establish guidelines (strategies and standards) for territorial agents, which promote our autonomous community in a balanced and sustainable territorial development. I.e., the improvement of all those factors that shape the quality of life of the inhabitants of a territory and dependent, directly or indirectly, of the characteristics of the territory in which they live (territorial factors of development), taking into account a series of factors that can limit or enhance this development.
