Consulting on municipal strategy

Retailing sets the tone of towns, cities and municipalities in an outstanding way. The attractiveness as a shopping destination depends to a large extent on a well-balanced mix of sectors and types of operation, whether in leading locations such as the city centre and district centres or even in sensibly-dimensioned retail warehouse concepts with good car access: The right mix of sectors, types of operation and locations is the key to success!

Municipalities, as the holders of planning powers, have a particular responsibility for the active control of retailing. Our bespoke concepts for decision-makers in politics and administration help to consolidate the overriding interests of town planning and promotion of economic development with those of developers and investors:

  • Overriding retail and town/city centre concepts as a basis for municipal planning under Section 1 para 2 No.11 BauGB
  • Developments of locations on a case-by-case basis, taking into account municipal objectives
  • Consideration of the compatibility of projects in a local and regional context
  • Regional retail concepts for supra-municipal, dialogue-oriented control of retailing
  • Assistance in selecting investors and evaluating concepts in the framework of competitions
  • Assessment and valorisation of revitalisation areas in the municipality

Your advantages:

  • Objective appraisal of the retail situation
  • Effective control of retail structures
  • Mandatory orientation for policy-making and administration
  • Competent lines of argument for dealings with developers and investors
  • Proactive local development from a municipal perspective
