Spatial planning professions should establish and formalise inter-disciplinary balanced models for evaluation and planning spatial development with common directions and goals. In the opposite case, urban development in Slovenia will still be evaluated from a defensive position and remain subordinate. It would be beneficial to research, how and to what extent can sectorian and disconnected dealings with space affect the concept of compact city and the possibility for protecting natural and cultural landscapes. Urbanists should focus on two aspects: how to act if the interdisciplinary sustainable model will not be developed, or not at all, and to what extent to improve efficiency? The solution probably lies in the answer, why don’t urban planners have the right to manage complex built-up space. Probably because their operative tools are almost completely useless in the new social condition.
