Urban Development Plans
Since the mid-1990s, Leipzig has been creating its own "Integrated Urban Development Planning" division within the city administration, which deals with the challenges of urban development in an interdisciplinary and future-oriented way. The aim is to design urban development processes that are both strategic and practical. Due to ongoing changes in development requirements in Leipzig, several urban development plans are being pursued, all of which are closely linked. So far, the City Council has adopted the following urban development plans: Housing Construction and Urban Renewal, City and District Centres, Commercial and Industrial Building Areas as well as Transportation and Public Space. These plans have been regularly adapted and updated to reflect changes to the basic parameters.
The topic housing was expanded to include other strategic concepts due to its high complexity and importance; these can be found under Strategic Concepts for Housing.
