The Prague Institute of Planning and Development (IPR Prague) is the body in charge of developing the concept behind the city’s architecture, urbanism, development and formation. It is an organisation funded by Prague and represents the city in spatial planning matters.

The institute chiefly drafts and coordinates documents in the following areas: strategic and spatial planning and development, public space, transport, technical matters, and landscape and economic infrastructure.  Such documents include the Prague Building Regulations, the Prague Waterfront Concept and the Prague Public Space Design Manual. Key projects include the creation of a new land use plan for Prague – the “Metropolitan Plan” – and the implementation of the Prague Strategic Plan.

IPR Prague is also in charge of the important task of processing geographical data and information, both for applied research and for the creation of supporting documentation that is important for the development of the city (particularly the Prague Analytical Land Use Documentation).

IPR Prague is the administrator of, which contains numerous maps of Prague available to the general public, and works with universities, scientific research institutions, and non-profit organisations, both nationally and internationally.

Public Participation in City Planning

Participatory planning helps to harmonize views among stakeholders in planning processes, prevents conflicts between parties representing various interests, and contributes to a long-term consensus. With this in mind, the Office of Public Participation at IPR Prague was set up in January 2015 as a response to the growing demand for the involvement of Prague citizens in urban planning.
