Sustainable Spatial Development

LEAN2 – Local Government Finances and Sustainable Land Management (2006- 2009)

The Institute of spatial planning (IRPUD) is taking part in the project “LEAN2 – Local Government Finances and Sustainable Land Management”. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research within the research field “Research for the Reduction of Land Consumption and for Sustainable Land Management (REFINA)”.

The project targets at the development and proving of a computer-based tool to ascertain financial impacts of municipal settlement development. The application-oriented tool enables the user to calculate short-, middle, and long-term costs and benefits of different possibilities of settlement development on different municipal planning levels, in order to support a well-founded and sophisticated economic weighting under the principle of sustainable and efficient land use management. The tool goes beyond prevailing project-oriented approaches and additionally considers the location of building sites within the settlement area and financially relevant factors of influence on level of the entire local authority.

Project partners of the IRPUD involved in the research approach are: Institut für Landes- und Stadtentwicklungsforschung und Bauwesen des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen (ILS NRW), “Planersocietät – Stadtplanung, Verkehrsplanung, Forschung”, RWTH Aachen, department of planning theory and urban planning, and nts mbH.
