The European Commission has decided to extend the INTERREG II Community initiative for cross-border cooperation by introducing a third strand concerning transnational cooperation on spatial planning, to be known as INTERREG II C. The spatial planning strand of INTERREG will provide assistance in the form of grants, loans and technical assistance for transnational measures in the field of spatial planning. There will be three elements in the strand: - Spatial planning and transnational cooperation measures; - Spatial planning and transnational cooperation against flooding; - Spatial planning and action against drought. Member States will be responsible for making proposals for measures to be financed under this strand. The Structural Funds will contribute a total of ECU 415 million to INTERREG II C, of which the majority will go to Objective 1, 2 5b and 6 regions.
