The paper briefly discusses features of the current town planning systems in Europe and in Slovenia, and on-going changes relating to new approaches to town planning, focussing on specific aspects, namely: on the need for an urban design strategy and informal planning documentation support, on planning gain and on action planning. Three examples of design issues are discussed: implementation of statutory plans (The Highbury initiatives, Birmingham), negotiated urban form (Broadgate Centre, London) and development control (Rog renewal, Ljubljana). Special attention is given to public involvement in design issues.
