Ecological urban renewal in Copenhagen. A European model

Technical Report:

Abstract

The Agency of Environmental Protection, City of Copenhagen has carried out the project ``Planning Model for Ecological Renewal of Old City Areas`` with support from the EC, DGXI. The overall aim of the study was to describe a planning model for ecological renewal of old European city areas using as a basis the ecological renewal of the Vesterbro district in Copenhagen. General conditions for urban renewal in Copenhagen are described. The overall infrastructural planning and strategies are briefly described together with a presentation of the specific renewal area. Finally the legislative, organisational and economic conditions for urban renewal are presented. The ecological planning process as it has actually developed and a study of the ecological potential for minimizing the consumption of resources and the environmental impact within the areas of energy, waste, water, greening of the district etc. are described. Barriers to and tools for the implementation of ecological solutions are analysed. The analysis describes which obstacles can arise to the implementation in the different areas, and gives an account of a number of tools available in the planning phase. A brief description of the experience with ecological renewal in Amsterdam, Berlin, Genoa and Madrid is given. Some general conditions  More>>

Some general conditions for urban renewal and ecological implementation are focused upon. with reference to the analysis of the Copenhagen Model and the results achieved in the four cities some general ecological guidelines for European cities are given.
