"Sustainable inner city development in the medium-sized town of Neu-Isenburg"

Abstract

The increasing urbanisation of German cities has negative consequences that manifest themselves in economic, ecological and social grievances. The aim of this Master's thesis is to present the future alternative development of a medium-sized city. This is done in the course of sustainable inner development, a modified form of the already known inner development, which treats the topics of urban development, mobility and the environment or open space equally. The aim is to implement the overall objectives of increasing the quality of life and improving climate protection. The result is reflected in a newly developed system, the main features of which can be applied to medium-sized cities with similar characteristics. The approach assesses the current status and, based on this, the development potential of urban structures and neighbourhoods in terms of their contribution to sustainability. This forms the basis for exemplary in-depth studies that show how the developed measures can be implemented. The literature research made it possible to address the current challenges of German cities and to define both goals and guidelines. Through the subsequent stock and SWOT analysis, the status quo of the research subject of the medium-sized town of Neu-Isenburg could be determined. Finally, a second analysis was carried out, through which neighbourhood modules and neighbourhood types were evaluated in detail. The final result shows the comprehensible and transparent development of the medium-sized town of Neu-Isenburg.
