A renewal approaches to planning could be the use of the Ecosystem Services theory. A planning that needs to utilise new concepts and tools able to build a sustainable relationship between consumption targets and carrying capacity of the resources in a territory. In particular, the paper focuses on the Plain of Lucca (Italy). It is proposed, therefore, a methodology to assist the planning process. A methodology developed with open source GIS using cadastral data, land-use data data on agricultural sector, and semi-structured interviews with local actors.
