    Abstract. Nowadays there is no doubt about the need and possibilities of using large amounts of information. Loaded in the form of Big Data technologies (BDT), information data in macro-scale is used in a variety of areas, and urban planning is no exception. Issues of the use of large volumes of information for competent design of social and engineering networks of the cities in the interest of their inhabitants when preserving the historical image of cities are considered. The hypothesis about the possibility of transition of the urban planning to a new, higher level due to the introduction of technology "Big Data" based on the concept of "Smart City", which not only makes the life of the people comfortable, but also makes it possible to make timely adjustments to this or that urban process in order to improve it, is put forward. Various approaches to realization of this concept and their application under different condition are presented. The experience of implementing the concept of Smart City as a part of the BDT in the practice of European cities is analyzed, important positive results of this introduction are noted. The role and place of every party interested in the sustainable development of the city, in development of intellectual systems of management of this development are substantiated. In particular, much attention is paid to the role of the state as an initiator and coordinator of the interaction of parties, the main data holder and data user, services and infrastructure. It is concluded that the potential of the "Big Data" technology makes it possible to transit to a new level of urban planning, in the basis of which will be real urban data collected with various technical means.
