Urban Development Strategy
To manage the predicted growth in a sustainable way while simultaneously preserving its quality of life, the Urban Development Strategy underpins the goals and Priority Fields of Action of the Strategic Vision for the city as a whole with a spatially nuanced strategy. It sets out the different potentials and challenges of the individual areas in Leipzig, including their contribution to solving city-wide tasks, and shows how the benefits and burdens of growth can be shared as widely as possible.
This spatial strategy of the Urban Development Concept consists of two parts which build on each other:
- the Multidisciplinary Priority Areas, which are designated as such owing to their particular problems or their particular potential within the growth process
- the District Strategy, which identifies the main medium and long-term development requirements for all 63 statistical districts from a citywide perspective
The aims are to achieve a balance between the activities throughout the city and the focus on Priority Areas, and to convey this as part of Leipzig's holistic urban development.
