In this report, a summary is made concerning the key findings related to the ‘intervention dilemma’ of planning between control and spontaneity (Savini, Salet, & Majoor, 2014). Two cases are analysed in two cities in Denmark: The suburban case of Aalborg East, and a brownfield case in Copenhagen, the South Harbour. The main difference between the two Danish cases are the collective points of action which were set in motion enduring planning processes in the urban fringe. In the Copenhagen Case, this happened from 1999-2003, in which the Head of Planning and his municipal allies were able to make a showcase that convinced developers to invest in a neighbourhood by proposing to build dwellings along the harbour in a former industrial, ill-reputed brownfield area; whereas in Aalborg East, this point of collective action is still open: will collaborators succeed in supporting a joint agenda? Is it possible for Aalborg Municipality to enable this sort of collaborative, flexible planning? Will one of the actors succeed in demonstrating a strategic leadership that will convince collaborators of the added value of the project, in order to change the status quo in the huge, fragmented suburban area of Aalborg East? For general background information concerning the context of the cases, the reader should consult the case-study descriptions already developed (Hansen, Savini, Wallin, & Mäntysalo, 2013).
