Neighbourhood management Brandenburgisches Viertel

With the neighbourhood management office in the community centre at Schorfheidestraße 13, the city of Eberswalde offers a contact point for residents directly on site. The main task of the neighbourhood management is to support diversity in the residential area and to strengthen the identification potential for the residents.

The community centre was created from the former daycare centre "Gestiefelter Kater" (Schorfheidestraße 11-13) in 2003. Today, the "Gestiefelter Kater" daycare centre is located at Schorfheidestraße 11 and the community centre at Schorfheidestraße 13. The conversion was financed by the Socially Integrative City programme.

The idea developed from the "Generationshaus" daycare centre project. The "Generations House" offers "leisure and educational programmes during and beyond the normal childcare hours of a childcare facility, many of which are of an intergenerational nature. By integrating further permanent counselling services and creating cultural offerings, the house is to be expanded into a socio-cultural leisure and information centre for the Brandenburg district." (Network Future - Integrated Action Concept for the Brandenburg Neighbourhood 2002)

The community centre has always been run by the city of Eberswalde. After its completion, the municipal neighbourhood management Brandenburgisches Viertel moved into its office in the building alongside other organisations. The creation of synergy effects between the community centre and the neighbourhood management, both of which are sponsored by the city of Eberswalde, are essential for the respective tasks and objectives and complement each other in their tasks and objectives for the neighbourhood.

The neighbourhood management team is also your local contact for information on what's on offer in the neighbourhood, funding opportunities under the Socially Integrative City programme and much more. Come along and visit us.

Project funding "Social cohesion" programme - formerly "Socially Integrative City"

The Brandenburg Quarter of the city of Eberswalde was included in the federal "Socially Integrative City" programme in 1999. in 2001, neighbourhood management was set up in the district as part of the funding programme. Since 2020, projects in the Brandenburg Quarter have been implemented under the new programme "Social cohesion - shaping life together in the neighbourhood" (SZH). The programme aims to upgrade the building fabric in districts with particular development needs and to promote social cohesion and integration. It is also part of the urban development programme in Eberswalde. The federal, state and local authorities jointly support the programme. The programme supports projects that have a direct impact on the ground.

News and dates

Social study Brandenburg Quarter 2022

In 2021, around 6,700 residents lived in the Brandenburg Quarter (BV) in Eberswalde, which was built in the 1970s and 1980s using industrial construction methods and in four construction phases. After sharp population declines between 1990 and 2010, the past five years have seen population growth, which is partly due to the admission of refugees and partly due to investments by housing companies. As part of a cooperation agreement between the Ministry of Infrastructure and Regional Planning, the city of Eberswalde and housing industry stakeholders, around 60 million euros of urban development funding will be invested in housing development in the Brandenburg Quarter by 2024.

Since 1999, the Brandenburgisches Viertel has been an assisted area of the "Socially Integrative City" and "Social Cohesion" programme, within the framework of which a neighbourhood management team with a district office has been working to establish network structures and initiate low-threshold projects to strengthen social services and facilities as well as the neighbourhood and local coexistence. With regard to the additional efforts of various stakeholders at the level of the state, the city and the neighbourhood, the Brandenburgisches Viertel may be facing a new transformation in which

the neighbourhood will also become an attractive residential location for other population groups. Eberswalde's main railway station can be reached quickly thanks to the good transport connections with the trolleybus and a frequent service. From there, Berlin can be reached in around 30 minutes. This also makes the Brandenburg neighbourhood an alternative for Berliners who can no longer afford or no longer want to live in the tight Berlin housing market. Added to this is the attractive natural location - the neighbourhood is surrounded by forest.

This social study for the Brandenburgisches Viertel is only intended to update the social studies from 1999 and 2012 to a limited extent; however, developments regarding the resident population, the identity and image of the neighbourhood as well as the facilities and demand for social infrastructure are compared with each other so that changes can be identified. However, the focus of this study was set differently: the current problems in the Brandenburgisches Viertel are to be identified and, in particular, the interaction between the services and facilities of social infrastructure and the needs of the resident population are to be compared and analysed so that the need for optimisation can be derived.
