Environmentally Acceptable Commercial Areas/ Future Places of Work
City: Münster
Field of activity: Enabling Environment for the Local Economy
Project description:

This project aims to work out a plan to optimise the ecological design of a commercial area and its application as a pilot scheme. The ecological dimensions refer not only to the choice of areas (conversion location) and an environmentally acceptable release of land for building, but also particularly take the ecological criteria in commercial building and the technical support and waste disposal into consideration.
Commercial area Loddenheide
Current status: The project was put into practice during the summer of 1998 and was ready for application at the end of 1998. The projected area consists of part of a conversion location with an area of 5 Ha. and is primarily orientated to use for small commercial enterprises. Surrounding split areas will be integrated into the project irrespective of the amount of support funds.
The application of the objectives of the project is dependent on a cooperative procedure with intensive consultation by experts for the businesses willing to settle on the land. The choice of advisers took place at the end of 1998. The consultations for the willing businesses have been in process in close cooperation with the local council since the beginning of 1999. The results of the consultations will be part of the contract of sale. The first businesses opened their doors in the spring of 2000.
Counselling having been exclusively verbal at the outset of the project, the further course of action has been so far modified that consultation files were compiled for the different focal points and presented to the businesses in preparation for the counselling. It is hoped that this initial information will make the following consultations more effective.
