Landmanagementstrategien und der Einfamilienhausbestand in schrumpfenden Gemeinden – Erkenntnisse aus Deutschland

Published Online: 10 Oct 2019
Page range: 119 - 134

Abstract

Abstract

For some years, increased attention has been paid to the single-family housing stock in Germany and the further designation of building land by municipalities. A Germany-wide anonymous survey of municipalities sheds light on the municipalities’ land management strategies with regard to declining populations and their anticipation of future problems for the further use of the single-family housing stock. The results of the quantitative survey are supplemented by qualitative interviews with municipal experts from case studies that were selected on the basis of criteria such as population decline, old-age dependency ratio, the share of single-family homes and vacancy rates. The aims of the survey and the interviews are to assess municipal representatives’ perceptions of population decline and of the necessity of undertaking measures to deal with shrinkage. Research questions are: What measures do municipalities consider appropriate to counter population loss and falling demand for housing in shrinking regions? How important are single-family housing areas in the perception of German municipalities? The results indicate that a continued designation of building land seems to be one of the most important measures used to cope with insufficient demand. The aim is to attract new inhabitants, particularly to shrinking cities. However, this approach reinforces current problems because it lowers demand for the housing stock and increases the risk of vacancies.

Konsistenz oder Widerspruch? Mobilitätsbezogene Einstellungen und die Verkehrsmittelnutzung der jungen ‚New Generation‘

Published Online: 18 Oct 2019
Page range: 135 - 151

Abstract

Abstract

In this paper, we examine the role of mobility-related attitudes in the travel mode use of young people, the extent to which young adults and teenagers behave consistently in relation to their attitudes, and the conditions on which the consistency of attitudes and behaviour depends. We thus continue the current discussion about the loss of importance of the car for young people in which various socio-demographic trends, but also changed attitudes, are used as explanatory factors, especially on a hypothetical level. Our contribution closes a research gap in that so far neither the relationship between attitudes and behaviour among young people has been empirically investigated nor has this relationship been empirically placed in a context of spatial, economic and socio-demographic conditions. We address this by means of differentiated correlation analyses and the calculation of correlation differences on the basis of a nationwide German survey of young people from 2013. This enables us to demonstrate that young people basically behave consistently in line with their attitudes. However, there are significant differences which confirm that certain spatial, economic and socio-demographic conditions are essential for the implementation of attitudes into corresponding travel mode use.

No sharing! A mixed methods study of short-term rentals and its socio-spatial implications in the city of Salzburg

Published Online: 06 Nov 2019
Page range: 153 - 170

Abstract

Abstract

Short-term rentals in general and Airbnb in particular are currently in the public focus. Using the example of the city of Salzburg with a mixed-method approach, this paper examines both the spatial characteristics and the stake-holder structure associated with this form of platform urbanism. Specifically, the paper provides insights into the spatial distribution, supply and revenue structure, motives of hosts and effects of Airbnb on the housing market. It becomes evident that Airbnb’s idea of shared housing in the sense of the so-called home sharing plays a subordinate role. A new market has developed between the hotel business and regular apartment rentals, which is determined primarily by commercial providers serving the Airbnb market in Salzburg. We argue that Airbnb creates a new form of rent gap, which is no longer preceded by a prior devaluation of districts. This earnings gap now also arises in urban areas that can be described as stable in terms of both price and socio-demographics, since profit increases can be achieved within a very short period of time and with little financial effort. The effects on the housing market are significant, especially in the heavily touristic frequented inner city areas of Salzburg, which cause or intensify processes of change.

Recent Challenges of the Ecosystems Services Approach from an Interdisciplinary Point of View

Published Online: 06 Nov 2019
Page range: 171 - 184

Abstract

Abstract

The ecosystem services approach has attracted tremendous attention from policymaking, planning and interdisciplinary sciences over the last decades. Despite its broad acknowledgement worldwide, there are a number of well-known conceptual and methodological limitations that impair its use and practical operationalisation. A brief discussion of these deficits is conducted from the integrated perspective of natural and social sciences. The paper then critically addresses the question of whether and to what extent the diversity, complexity and hybridity of the human-nature context should be shaped into a uniform scheme, disregarding the differing scales of the social, economic and ecological processes, functions and the trade-offs between them.

Towards Normality: Planning-related Protests and Reactions by Planning

Published Online: 06 Nov 2019
Page range: 185 - 201

Abstract

Abstract

The paper argues for a stronger distinction within planning protests, which is today an everyday part of planning practice. Furthermore, it is argued that the diversity of planning protest can also be used for differentiated reactions of planning practitioners. It is possible and sensible to adopt theories from protest and social movements research to better understand protest in planning, yet specifications for planning-related protest are needed. Planning protests are understood as collective action and form of local political participation, which takes place independently participation offers and has a relation to local spatial planning. Based on an empirical survey and statistical analysis of more than four hundred planning-related citizen protests in Berlin between 2005 and 2015, supported by two qualitative case studies, a typology of nine protest types will be developed, that is specific in time and place. The causes and claims articulated in the framing of protesters are understood as alternative approaches to solving planning problems. In particular, a distinction is made between situational and planning-dependent as well as initiative and reactive types of protest. Differences in content appear to be of special importance for the current protests, but also underline its political character. Yet, they are only part of the phenomenological diversity of planning protest and reactions therefore are to be differentiated for every individual case. This will be highlighted with regard to protests that are organised either by affected or unaffected citizens.
