0     Abstract

0.1 PA title
      “Implementation of the spatial development concept Raab valley”


0.2 Territory concerned (§ 3.5 application form)
      18 communities in the region of Feldbach, east Styria with 30.000 inhabitants and a a surface of
      252 km²


0.3 Background of pilot action
      The spatial development concept Raab valley, compiled by a wide participation of local
      representatives in 2001/2002, contains a large number of targets, recommendations and
      measures concerning the future development of the valley. Parts of the concept have been
      competed, other parts had to be updated conforming to the flood extension study 2004.
      The implementation of the targets and measures required detailed planning and follow-up
      activities. Additionaly there is a need of intensive informational activities and discussion.


0.4 Objectives of pilot action
      The main goal of the pilot action is the improvement and best realisation of concept measures in
      line with the project steering. The current activities of information and public-relations shall
      support the acceptance and sponsorship for sustainable land use in the Raab valley.
      The activities of the pilot action carry forward the planning process and support the Austrian
      spatial development concept 2001.

1.2 Summary (max. 2 pages)
      Detailed consultation and coordination of hot-spot-areas on local level
      The spatial development concept includes drafts for land use solutions in 9 so-called ‘hot-spot-
      areas’ (areas with land use conflicts among industrial use, flood risk or ecological patterns)
      which were detailed discussed. The results are locally agreed and coordinated spatial concepts.

      Update of statistical data and relevant planning material
      The structural socio-economical statistics and future trends have been updated. Equally actual
      aerial views and other spatial basics have been integrated in the planning documentation.

      Coordination of land use patterns with the B 68 motorway project
      The upgrading of the B68 motorway is one of the regional leading projects. The measures
      concerning the pilot project are the optimization of the line management, land use and
      environmental patterns.

      Harmonization of the spatial development concept on regional level
      The spatial development concept Raab valley was the basis for the regional development plan of
      the political district Feldbach, established in 2005/2006, which adopted the priority areas for
      water management, environment, agriculture and industry.

      Harmonization of spatial recommendations with current fluvial planning acivities
      The planning of measures for the water management and protection concept for the Raab valley
      was developed in close accord with the spatial development concept to accommodate the future
      development of the Raab valley.

                             concept Raab valley” WP 3, PP Styria




      Elaboration of detailed objectives and measures for the development of free space
      For the protection and the development of free space detailed objectives and actions, completed
      by measures for the implementation, have been established for every zone.

      Technical basics and objectives for the industrial site in Berndorf
      The industrial site Berndorf is one of the best qualified industrial locations in the region. For the
      enlargement of the industrial site Berndorf the technical basics and objectives and a planning of
      configuration and designing have been established.

      Detailed local recreation concept along the Raab River and the bikeroute
      The Raab River and associated spaces and facilities in the surrounding of the residential areas
      shall be revised and enhanced by optimizing the bike-route, integration of sites of experience,
      staging of nature bound places at the Raab River, improvement of information and involvement
      of the local gastronomy.

      School project belonging to the objectives of the spatial development plan
      The project ‘Zukunft Raabtal’ (the future of the Raab valley) is a project work of pupils of the
      BORG Feldbach, the regional grammar school. During the summer term 2006 the pupils
      between 15 and 17 analyze the actual situation of the Raab valley and look into the long-term
      development of their region. The results will be presented in June 2006.

      Update and summary of GIS database on planning level
      The termination of the spatial development concept Raab valley contains a documentation of
      basic-information from all relevant departments. This documentation includes the final report,
      all plans, aerial views and GIS-Data from the region and shall be available to all experts,
      planners and regional officers.

      Input for the styrian environmental monitoring data system
      Within the scope of the project ‘Styrian Spatial Information System’ a first draft for monitoring
      data about environmental themes was elaborated and discussed, considering as example the
      spatial development concept Raab valley.

      Thematic workshops with experts and local representatives
      Thematic workshops with experts and local representatives were held in numerous forms. The
      interest to the theme and the participation at the workshops was eminent.

      Project documentation with final report and brochure
      The project documentation with final report, plans and a brochure of the spatial development
      concept Raab valley are in preparation for June 2006.




1.3 Best practice example
Is the pilot action a Best practice example? What makes it a best practice example?
a) Regarding the process – is something new in the process of the PA?




eng_FinRep_WP3_PA2_Raabtal_STY_20060428.doc       Page 3
                                         final report pilot action
                               “Implementation of the spatial development
                                  concept Raab valley” WP 3, PP Styria


b)   Thematic – innovative topic / content?
c)   Innovative planning instrument?
d)   Is the PA appliable to other partner regions?
e)   Other?

       The implementation of the spacial development concept was associated with intensive
       discussions and commitments between involved experts and local / regional representatives. The
       expert level included themes like flood risk management, ecological requirements or traffic
       planning.
       The linkage of spatial planning instruments with environmental planning and intensive flood
       risk management is an innovative topic compliant to the goals of the Austrian spacial
       development concept 2001. The project was documented as a “Good Practice” by the ÖROK
       (Austrian Conference on Spatial Planning).
       Innovative planning instruments: spatial development concept compliant to the spatial
       development program (regulation), environmental planning, flood risk research and flood risk
       management program, environmental monitoring system.
       The pilot action is applicable to other regions with similar geographical structures and a need to
       coordination of spatial development, based on flood risk studies and following targets.


1.4 Output for WP level
     New approach in regional planning, methodology of integration of landscape planning and water
     management into spatial planning/regional development
     transsectoral elaboration of development strategy with active implementation of measures,
     integration of results of other INTERREG III B-projects,
     achieve synergies by cooperating with partners from other INTERRREG projects in the
     CONSPACE region
