Sustainable Building Land Development for Urban and Rural Areas

Shaping the future

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Hessische Landgesellschaft and its partners organized a series of lectures. This third and last forum was dedicated to the topic of building land development.
Land is a limited resource and a valuable asset that is protected and developed by the HLG as a state trust agency for rural land readjustment. As a "temporary building authority", more than 300 residential and commercial areas are currently being developed throughout Hesse. With this forum, the first guideline for Plus-Energy-Settlements was presented to the public and the most important aspects and strategies of a sustainable development of building land were discussed with experts.
