Urban Development

It is clear that this task requires cross-border cooperation with neighbouring provinces and countries, particularly in the framework of the European CENTROPE region.

The Urban Development Plan (Stadtentwicklungsplan - STEP) is an important tool in this context. For instance, it specifies whether an area is designated as green space or for traffic purposes, for commercial buildings or housing construction.

The City of Vienna is proud to host the "Walk21" con­ference from 20 to 23 October 2015. Whether you are a politician, a planner, a campaigner, a researcher or a practitioner, you are welcome sharing your experience and be part of the discussion: Call for abstracts - Walk21
