The decisions taken in urban planning and the resulting land use and development plans often follow outdated urban planning principles. In many cities, for example, proof of one car parking space per housing unit is still required. What happens to these areas if the requirements in our neighbourhoods are completely different after the switch to e-mobility and car and bike sharing?
How can the use of parking areas be adapted to the changing requirements of society and the neighbourhood in the areas of mobility, energy supply and social services? What can a concept for the flexible use of parking spaces look like and how can it be implemented in planning law?
A redesigned parking space should be, for example:
- gradually adapted to the needs of users in the neighbourhood,
- modular, based on the technological development of the vehicles and types of mobility,
- the coupling point of a sustainable, decentralised energy supply for the neighbourhood,
- an area for alternative, social use.
