What is urban development doing?

Urban development planning controls and coordinates the overall spatial, economic and social development of the city. It is a process that is constantly being updated and fed back and requires an interdisciplinary, integrated and forward-looking approach. Urban development is facing new challenges due to social trends and framework conditions such as demographic change, globalisation, the anchoring of sustainability and climate protection at local level, new participation structures and financial problems in the public sector. in 2007, the city of Eberswalde redefined the strategic and integrated basis for future urban development in a broad-based planning and participation process.

The integrated urban development concept forms the basis for the forthcoming urban reorganisation and design process. In March 2008, the city council adopted the integrated urban development concept "Eberswalde 2020 Strategy". The continuous monitoring of urban development processes also requires adjustments and updates to urban development strategies. In 2014, the new urban development strategy with a planning horizon of 2030 was adopted by the city council.

The urban development concept presents guiding principles, strategies and key measures for various subject areas such as housing, work, social infrastructure, transport and economic development and thus offers the possibility of counteracting foreseeable negative trends and at the same time sustainably promoting potential for the longer-term development of the city. In addition to the city-wide and longer-term conceptualisation of urban development, planning considerations are also made at a sub-regional level and within specialist planning. These include, for example, district development concepts for Finow and the Brandenburg Quarter, integrated transport development planning and the retail and centre concept. Urban planning instruments such as the land use plan and the development plans form the basis for an urban development-orientated implementation of the previously developed action strategies.

The urban development funding programmes can be used in a targeted manner for the solution-oriented elimination of urban development, functional and social deficiencies, which Eberswalde is still not free of 20 years after reunification. Strengthening the inner city and the centres, reducing housing surpluses, achieving infrastructural improvements, upgrading areas affected by shrinking processes, strengthening civic engagement and promoting networks are some of the important fields of action of the urban renewal programmes, as they are also used in Eberswalde.

Climate protection, intergenerational equity, accessibility and demographic change are current issues that, when considered today and taken into account in all planning, have positively influenced the city in all its functions and thus ensure its sustainable existence. Personal initiative and civic involvement as well as the networking of activities have become increasingly important in the city of Eberswalde. Identification with and quality of life in the town of Eberswalde cannot be imposed - you can only shape it yourself.
