Abstract

The paper discusses the managing of a multiplicity of factors affecting the character of the city and at the same time analyzes three various approaches to suburban areas to compare their methodological guidelines and addresses the issue of urban identity within sustainability (on a strategic level). These approaches focus on the identity problem of a suburban area, extending the instrumental background provided by the framework established earlier for peripheral urban zones in Poland. Strategies are confronted with 3 distinct applications around the city of Poznan.
