Spatial Development of Small and Mid-sized Communities

Small and mid-sized communities are facing particularly large challenges under the policy of developing existing settlements before expanding into undeveloped or agricultural land. The Chair of Spatial Development is currently working with the community of Lengnau AG in connection to these upcoming tasks. Part of these tasks include the inward development of existing settlements with high quality and a sense of proportion. The future of public buildings and facilities is an important element of inner development and requires careful consideration.

A special challenge is the development of the town centre. The community of Lengnau AG is as a good example of a mid-sized community for reviewing and presenting the tasks involved. Important steps will be prepared and conducted by the participants under supervision and the experiences will then be evaluated.
