Summary/Abstract: The hypothesis of a new spatial development of Bulgaria in four regions and the integration of regional and territorial / spatial / planning through unified territorial planning documents is a new theoretical concept for a scientifically motivated change in state planning through practical application in the legislation. By reducing the NUTS 2 planning regions from six to four, a more even distribution of the population by region is achieved, better EUROSTAT compliance, better and more rational management and more appropriate development according to functional spatial planning.
