The present piece seeks to bring a comprehensive explanation about three main urban processes in the Colombian territorial planning system: i. Creation of urban plots; ii. Creation of public space and iii. Allocation of buidabilily rights. The study will approach to these topics from a broad perspective that understands each of them as part of the general territorial processes, and as such will examine the specific regulations that determine them and analyse the consequences that the creation for plots and public space and the allocation of buildability rights could generated.
