The Role Of Green Urban Wastelands In 3rd Place Creation. Challenge For Urban Policy In Poland, Anna Wilczyńska, Maciej Łepkowski, Ryszard Nejman

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

An Urban area is a complex system that constantly changes, forms dynamically and functionsindependently. Despite of huge development pressure coming from the fast urban growth there are still many neglected areas or so-called urban wastelands. These zones seem to be commonly considered (also by local governments and city planners) as worthless and unproductive critical spaces that need to be invested in and returned to the city. On the other hand, we ahould point out a growing conviction among scientists about the importance of wastelands in context of their strong impact on the urban ecosystem and some social aspects of urban ...

Is Liverpool (Uk) Ready To Embrace Green Infirastructure And Greenway Practices? Rethinking The Funding, Management And Spatial Distribution Of City’S Greenspace Network In An Era Of Austerity., Ian C. Mell

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Changes in government in 2010 placed additional economic pressures on the funding of urban greenspaces. These changes have led Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) to make difficult choices over what services they are legally required to provide. Potentially the biggest loser in this process has been the funding for greenspaces. Although many cities have felt the impacts of fiscal austerity, Liverpool has been one of the city’s hardest hit. As a consequence, Liverpool City Council (LCC) is being forced to make decisions over how it will maintain the city’s landscape post 2016/17. Partially this reflects the fragmented nature ...

The “Trame Verte Et Bleue” French Policy: What Territorial Coherence Does It Offer?, Julie Chaurand, Jean-Philippe Tonneau, Jacques Baudry

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Can the territorial coherence concept facilitate the implementation and the assessment of the French public policy called “Trame verte et bleue” (TVB)?

Coherence is inherent to TVB and is expressly noted in French law. The TVB policy has to be coherent at different territorial levels, from national to local and between adjacent territories. Policy goals linked to landscape ecology concepts have to provide synergies with other territory goals: economic activity, housing, tourism...

How can TVB project coherence be supported? In our work, we rely on the territorial coherence concept which we believe, has yet to be studied in the inter-scale ...
