Spatial planning is one of the most complex government activities since it involves multi stakeholders and directly influence the way community interact with land. Main deliverables of spatial planning is regulations and maps of planning zones. They need be delivered to community effectively and transparently.

Internet offers improvement of this process by enabling electronic delivery of planning regulations and maps, and facilitating online transaction. The implementation of e-Planning depend on several factors, among them are human resources, funding, and ICT infrastructures. This paper describes findings on what challenges and impediments faced by local government in Indonesia if they want to implement e-Planning concepts. It was base on the findings from questionnaires distributed to local planning agencies and websites survey. Three broad aspect were investigated, organization, ICT infrastructures and spatial data infrastructures. Websites survey was conducted to investigate how local government and local planning agencies make use of their websites.
