Projects and innovation

Published Online: 31 Jan 2003
Page range: 3 - 12

Abstract

Abstract

Projects have gained importance for town and regional planning. The question is, in how far can the emerging new task for public planning, the organisation of innovations, explain the rise of the importance of project-oriented planning. It is argued that projects are well suited for the creation of innovation, since they provide an apt organisational framework in which planning is capable to combine creative processes with strong implementation practices. This new mode of planning is not only a sign for the decline of public planning, it also offers some chances.

Feasibility studies for regional projects

Published Online: 31 Jan 2003
Page range: 13 - 27

Abstract

Abstract

What frequently makes regional projects particularly complex — compared to projects in the private sector — is the relatively large number of players involved in a project. Nonetheless, systematic studies of the chances of successful implementation remain rare. An analysis of feasibility studies of the type conventionally conducted in the private sector as an element of project management reveals precisely what project-related factors are critical for the use, design and conduct of feasibility studies. This analysis provides the basis for the author to draw up a model feasibility study for regional projects which takes full account of the specific characteristics of such projects.

Regional development in conditions of shrinkage

Published Online: 31 Jan 2003
Page range: 28 - 42

Abstract

Abstract

Demographic shrinkage is a fact of life both in Germany and in Europe. In both eastern and western Germany it is leading to dramatic changes in spatial structures and throwing up new challenges for spatial planning. It is, however, important to note that shrinkage and growth can often be found side by side and in extremely close proximity to each other. It is against this background that the author explores the changes which need to be made to spatial planning and possible perspectives for steering development. The combination of “top-down” framework steering and “bottom-up” co-ordination — i.e. an incentive-oriented, multi-tiered form of steering — could, it is argued, be a helpful approach to facilitate more differentiated reactions than have previously been possible to the local particularities of development processes.

Use of wind energy gaining strength

Published Online: 31 Jan 2003
Page range: 43 - 57

Abstract

Abstract

Wind energy is booming. While other sectors of the economy are in crisis, for years now the wind-energy sector has been recording double-digit growth rates. But the enthusiasm generated here is not unalloyed: at many proposed sites there have been serious conflicts with residents and other representatives of local interests. This has led to wind-energy utilisation — and how to accommodate it — becoming one of the hottest topics of the day in spatial planning. It is against this backdrop, and in the light of a number of important recent changes to the law, that this article presents a critical analysis and survey of the current state of play and offers practical suggestions and recommendations on approaches to wind-energy utilisation.

The “state of emergency” as development strategy

Published Online: 31 Jan 2003
Page range: 58 - 67

Abstract

Abstract

Old industrialised regions which are characterised by small and medium-sized towns are amongst the most deprived areas in eastern Germany. This article investigates the extent to which large-scale, environmentally focused co-operation projects may offer a stimulus for the development of these regions. Analysis of case studies shows that the projects investigated have indeed had a considerable positive impact on regional development. The effects achieved go far beyond the projects themselves. This success can be primarily put down to the exceptional situation in the regions under review, effectively a “state of emergency”, brought about by such large-scale, environmentally focused co-operation projects and acting as the driving force for regional action. Recommendations concerning regional development and policy are made on the basis of findings from the case studies.

University Research and Industrial R&D in Germany

Published Online: 31 Jan 2003
Page range: 68 - 82

Abstract

Abstract

Theoretical considerations suggest that scientific research can stimulate industrial research and development activities on a regional level (spillover). This article uses public funding of scientific institutions, research grants, industrial spending on research and development, and patents as indicators to investigate the relation between science and industry statistically. However, the analyses show that the spatial distribution of industrial R&D activities in Germany cannot be explained by the existence of regional spillovers between science and industry alone.

FFH impact assessment and spatial planning procedures

Published Online: 31 Jan 2003
Page range: 83 - 97

Abstract

Abstract

At the latest since the passage of the EU’s Conservation of Wild Birds Directive and the Flora-Fauna-Habitat Directive, it has been impossible for spatial planning law in Germany to remain aloof from the influence of European nature-protection legislation. These two directives provide for the creation of a Europe-wide network of nature reserves - termed “Natura 2000”; this network is to be protected from any destructive influences, firstly by means on a prohibition on impairment and disturbance, and secondly by requiring FFH impact assessment. Comparatively little attention has been given so far to one question of particular importance in planning practice, namely whether FFH impact assessment is also to be mandatory within comprehensive spatial-planning procedures. Consequently, this article attempts to shed light on the areas where European nature-protection law and German spatial-planning procedures come into contact with each other.

The successful initiation of voluntary regional partnerships in the implementation of sustainable spatial development

Published Online: 31 Jan 2003
Page range: 98 - 106

Abstract

Abstract

In political and academic circles, as well as among practitioners of spatial planning, a wideranging discussion is currently taking place on the scope and limits of voluntary regional partnerships as an instrument for implementing sustainable spatial development. The 26 factors affecting the successful initiation of appropriate forms of regional partnerships which are presented in this article represent the central results of a research project conducted in the Department of Environmental and Spatial Planning at the Technical University of Darmstadt. These factors are considered to provide vital assistance to those involved in the organisation and management of such initiation stages.

The economic value of open space in urban areas

Published Online: 31 Jan 2003
Page range: 107 - 117

Abstract

Abstract

Green spaces have important values contributing to the quality of urban life. According to economic theory, these values should be assessed in monetary terms. This paper discusses the suitability of the contingent valuation in assessing urban green spaces benefits, and presents the main results of an empirical study conducted in Berlin. The study was designed to measure the the visitors’ willingness to pay for two programs to enhance the quality of an urban park.
