Development Plans Simplify City Planning
A development plan is an informal planning tool to explore development potentials in a city or district, to present a rough outline for its potential future use. It is not legally binding, and is subject to a standardised procedure. The planning scale is arranged between the land use and development planning, and is thus usually used as an intermediary. The contents of the plan – both text and plan images – serve to simplify the representation of future urban planning and development possibilities.
Urban framework plans are often drawn up in order to achieve concrete usage results for competition procedures, or to protect certain urban areas (for example, protection of the property or its use). Public suggestions are particularly helpful. The framework plans presented here focus particularly on the development of high-rise buildings in Frankfurt’s inner city.
