At present time old ideas and assumptions about the development, planning and management of the modern, industrial city seem less and less useful for managing the environment under physical, social and economic pressure never experienced by the human being. Already accepted notions about the nature of space, time, distance and the processes of urban life are similarly under question. Since some years it is theorised the “e-planning”, which refers to the use of electronic processes in delivering planning and development services, such as the online placement and processing of development applications, and the provision of web- based information such as maps, regulations and state and local policies. On the side of e-planning it has been also theorised the Geo-government (geo-gov) which is the ability of public authorities to use geographic information for managing, controlling and planning human activities and the nature of the territory.Being INSPIRE the EU pillar of SDIs the reasonable question is : will INSPIRE influence spatial planning ? and if yes how ? These questions far from being rhetoric might strongly help to set up a common process of inputting SDIs principles and solutions into the planning and to tailor the continuous developments of INSPIRE to satisfy the real user need to have sustainable human settlements planned by an effective and efficient planning process.INSPIRE and spatial planning will not fight one against the other for supremacy but how they will interface for the benefit of inhabitants is a story which has to be written.
