- The well-known subdivided French commune system is crucial in this paper to an understanding of the rural organization and the decentralized regional development policy in France.
As the rural exodus and the phenomenon of "rurbanisation" unfold, the rural communes with a naturally small scale have become more and more obliged to cooperate either mutually or with the nearby urban communes.
Since a fail of the authoritarian communal fusion, intercommunality has been considered as the best means of arbitrating between the efficient regional development and the communes" desire for autonomy. Intercommunal cooperation, initially employed as a simple tool of the distributing basic services, replaces the power of the communes concerning the regional development, involving the delegation of the most of communal competences to the intercommunal structure (Etablissements publics de coop？ration intercommunale),
In this paper considering the French commune system and the intecommunal cooperation, I have dealt with the current mutations of rural space, especially the rurbanisation, and insisted on a development of a rural type of intercommunal cooperation through the example of the Communaut？ de communes du Pays de Lanvollon-Plouha, located in Bretagne, the north-western side of France.
