Abstract: The present Master's final work has as a starting point the debate on the proposal to create a Metropolitan Area of Vallès (AMV), led by the City council of Sabadell and presented publicly in December of 2018 under the manifesto 'Som Vallès'. The proposal is especially innovative and destabilizes the territorial planning of Catalonia, as well as the Vallès relations with the Metropolitan Area Barcelona (AMB) and its metropolitan region (RMB), regardless of its suitability and viability. From this fact, the work reflects on the condition of the Vallès as a metropolitan area, analyzing the different definitions existing in the literature, what key elements they gather, how they are governed, what models there are and what degree of institutionalization they have. In this sense, the work analyzes the perception of the Vallès as a metropolitan periphery and the discourses articulated around this concept. On the other hand, the paper analyzes which models of governance could be applied to Vallès, facing its potentialities with its limitations and placing special emphasis on the analysis of the proposal to create a new metropolitan entity. Finally, the work proposes a horizontal and flexible coordination governance model for the Vallès, based on the strategic planning and framed within the scope of the Metropolitan Region of Barcelona. In addition, the proposal takes as a reference and backdrop the New United Nations Urban Agenda as an instrument that can contribute to articulate the different discourses existing in the Vallès and to reinforce its metropolitan reality.
