European Metropolitan Regions in Germany—a Regional Economic Evaluation

Published Online: 31 Aug 2010
Page range: 243 - 254

Abstract

Abstract

For more than ten years the concept of European Metropolitan Regions is fixed in the German regional planning system. This article uses the shift-share-technique to assess the economic performance of the eleven German metropolitan areas based on a national comparison. Firstly, there is a widely spread difference in the economic performance of the metropolitan regions. Secondly, there are four categories of regions implemented to analyze the intraregional growth patterns. Here the category of agglomerations belts is identified as the growth foci in German employment. The hinterland of the metropolitan regions as a kind of edge regions between agglomeration and rural areas is characterized by relatively low economic performance.

Keywords

  • Metropolitan regions
  • Employment growth

One or Two or Three? On the Constitution of Potential Metropolitan Regions on Rhine and Ruhr

Published Online: 31 Aug 2010
Page range: 255 - 270

Abstract

Abstract

The article discusses an advancement of the planning concept of „Metropolitan Region Rhine Ruhr“, which has been established in the year 1995, but never realised in practice. Based on a measuring concept that quantifies the metropolitan functions, the potential separate Metropolitan Regions Cologne-Bonn and Düsseldorf as well as the constitution of a comprehensive Metropolitan Region Rhineland are put in a direct comparison to the big German Metropolitan Regions. In addition, inter- and intraregional linkage patterns of the metropolitan area are analysed by means of commuter relations. Based on these empirical results, promotive and aggravating factors for the formation of alternative Metropolitan Regions are finally identified and the demarcation variations are compared.

Coordination by Spatial Planning in Germany-Legal Aspects

Published Online: 31 Aug 2010
Page range: 271 - 282

Abstract

Abstract

The Federal Administrative Court’s judgement of 03/16/2006 concerning the airport Berlin-Schönefeld seems to announce a renaissance of the idea of coordination by spatial planning. Even after this decision, however, the Länder’s comprehensive regional planning will not be able to effectively coordinate the federal state’s and the European Union’s sectoral plannings. The paper elaborates various possible strategies to improve the legal framework for comprehensive spatial planning in Germany.

Employment Suburbanisation, Urban Spatial Structure and Commuter Traffic: Trends in German Metropolitan Areas 1999-2007

Published Online: 31 Aug 2010
Page range: 283 - 295

Abstract

Abstract

The paper examines the effect of employment suburbanisation on commuter traffic in German metropolitan regions. In order to identify how different urban spatial structures affect commuting behaviour, monocentric (Hamburg, Munich) and polycentric regions (Frankfurt am Main, Stuttgart) are compared. First we focus on the (spatio)structural minimum number of commuters, which is an appropriate measure for the regional jobs housing balance. In the second step we analyze the change of both the commuting volume and the distances covered by commuters. For this purpose, different indicators derived from commuting data are used, allowing us to compare different agglomerations and/or points in time. The analysis is based on commuting data between 1999 and 2007 taken from the German Social Security Statistics.

Land Consumption 2020 and the National 30-ha-target: Regional Distribution and Adjustments

Published Online: 31 Aug 2010
Page range: 297 - 309

Abstract

Abstract

The reduction of land development and the attainment of the national 30-ha-sustainability-target require all states, regions and municipalities in Germany to adjust. Up to now, however, regional targets for local jurisdictions have not been achieved. This paper presents a top-down mechanism by which a national target is subdivided according to the population and total area shares of each administrative unit. Distributional implications of this rule are analyzed on the level of states and regions. For this purpose, the derived sub-quantities are compared with the past and future land development rates. The future development of land consumption is estimated by the Panta Rhei Regio model, which projects growth rates of settlement and traffic areas until 2020. The results show that although land development will decline significantly in the next years, it will still clearly remain above the 30-ha-target level. As the simulation is modeled on county level the results also indicate the need to specify detailed quantity standards at regional level. A definition of subdivided targets for states, regions and municipalities offers the opportunity to improve the ongoing German debate on open space preservation and to initiate greater efforts on the way to a more efficient use of natural resource land.

Potentials of Flexible Integrated Semicentralized Infrastructure Systems in Urban Water Management

Published Online: 31 Aug 2010
Page range: 311 - 326

Abstract

Abstract

Dynamics like climate or demographic changes require a new flexibility, which existing infrastructure systems in Germany cannot perform. The general assumption centralized systems within urban areas of middle or high density offer advantages compared to decentralized structures has to be scrutinized under changing conditions. The following paper introduces an innovative approach of integrated, sector crossing infrastructure systems developed for fast growing urban areas in Asia and screens for transfer potentials of this approach, in order to develop strategies to cope with arising problems in infrastructure matters in Germany. The paper closes with strategic recommendations for changing infrastructure development and offers strategies for adapting current infrastructure elements in order to perform better under changing conditions.
