The article analyzes spatial development of territories of Volgograd Oblast and demographic tendencies and determines main problems of spatial development at the modern stage.

The stages of evaluation of territory’s spatial development are offered. One of the directions is creation of large centers far from the Oblast center and moving rural residents into large communities with provision of accommodation and jobs. The authors make a conclusion on a high role of territorial planning which combines natural and ecological, socio-economic, and spatial analysis and which is capable to view a network of settlements from the position of a perspective view of the desired future.
