Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to describe the essential interrelationships in settlement development and the corresponding spatial control options; to define the instruments of supra-local and local spatial planning and to identify the essential planning and decision-makers in settlement development as well as to explain requirements for participative planning processes; to contribute to current planning-related discussions (e. g. urban sprawl defence, building land mobilisation, climate change, natural hazard management, shopping centres).

Subject of course

Introduction to spatial planning (basic functions of existence as object of spatial planning); tasks of spatial planning (basic features of historical development); spatial conditions and development trends (population and settlement development, economic development, traffic and transport, landscape and natural resources).  Challenges to spatial planning today (regional and national competitiveness, social diversity and solidarity, climate change, adaptation and resource efficiency, cooperative action structures); planning system in Austria (planning levels, competences and instruments).
