Regions and Urban Freight working group meeting: Regional land use planning

The Regions and Urban Freight working groups join for a combined meeting on regional aspects of land use planning and settlement structures for sustainable mobility patterns.

13 March; 2023

10:00-12:00 CET


This joint Regions and Freight working group meeting will examine how regions can enhance land-use planning to achieve sustainable mobility goals. We explore governance issues, opportunities for cross sector collaboration, and key insights from the freight perspective.

We also look at how projects on the ground are finding new ways of ensuring land-use and sustainable transport are working together.

We hear from FrankfurtRheinMain on how the Regional Authority is formally tasked with setting up and applying a legally binding regional land-use plan for the 80 municipalities in the core of FrankfurtRheinMain, strong instruments which will provide participants insight into policy actions taking place, linking EU cooperation on land-use planning and urban-rural connections.

We also hear from Oslo and their regional plan for land use planning and transport, the plan was imposed by the national government and made through a joint local collaboration, with substantial work on-boarding municipal governments in the processes.

Université Gustave Eiffel also provides insights from the TOD project, which seeks to undertake significant research contributions to the scientific and societal challenge of countering sprawl in Europe. The university's logistics chair also provides insight from regional freight planning research.
