Success criteria and target groups

Fit port development best into urban planning and social interests

● The integration of port (infrastructure) projects in urban planning procedures and social interests has to respond to challenges from a tightening conflict regarding the limited space at the waterfront.

● The development of new port infra-structure can be facilitated by the idea to combine port activities with (semi-)public spaces in order to legitimize port activities in urban areas and city centers.

● Extensive preparation work like studies, analyses and well-defined planning procedures on the one hand as well as a close participation of the major stakeholders and the public on the other hand are vital for a successful implementation of the project.
