Climate-adapted building with green roofs - missing in the NBauO

UI-Optionen: Sponsorenfeld
Anzeige Text im Grid: Nein

In the planned new regulation of the NBauO, photovoltaic systems for electricity generation on roofs (§ 32a NBauO draft) are prescribed for the first time.

However, this only takes into account one energy-related aspect of future-oriented building development. The current challenges posed by climate change and the necessary adaptation to the consequences of climate change, as well as the requirements of preserving biodiversity in our highly sealed settlement areas, are not taken into account. Regulations for the installation of green roofs urgently need to be added.

LROP without bite - no way to less "land consumption

UI-Optionen: Sponsorenfeld
Anzeige Text im Grid: Nein

A sustainability objective which has existed since 2002 and is central to spatial development, namely the setting of a guideline figure for land take, is now being incorporated into Lower Saxony's state planning. However, the sustainability target refers to the "reduction of settlement and transport land". In Lower Saxony, reference is made to the "new sealing of land". However, by changing the reference base to "new sealing" instead of reduction of "settlement and transport area", the guideline size of the sustainability target is considerably (approx. double) exceeded.

Stop land consumption - For sustainable commercial development on less land

A new commercial development programme is currently being drawn up in Bremen. According to the ideas of the leading economic department, further new commercial areas are also being discussed - for example in the Blockland, in the Ochtum lowlands south of the airport, in the Neustädter Hochwasserpolder nature reserve and also in allotment garden areas, for example through the expansion of the Bayernstraße commercial area. A broad alliance of professional associations, including the Landesverband der Gartenfreunde Bremen e.V., Architects for Future Bremen e.V. and the Unternehmensverband Garten -, Landschafts- und Sportplatzbau, categorically rejects the development of new commercial areas "on greenfield sites".

New Board of Directors in the Regional Association Niedersachsen+Bremen

UI-Optionen: Sponsorenfeld
Anzeige Text im Grid: Nein

At this year's general meeting on 29 September 2020, a new board of directors was elected as scheduled.

Gotthard Storz was confirmed in office as chairman of the regional association, as was his deputy Georg Grobmeyer.

Jessica Schütte, office partner of the Freiraumplanung group from Langenhagen, will assume the office of a further deputy chairperson. The group of employees/officials is represented by Gwendolyn Kusters, who works for the city of Garbsen as an open space and object planner and also represents the interests of landscape architects on the board of the Lower Saxony Chamber of Architects.

Gotthard Storz thanked Sabine Scherer and Petra Schoelkopf for their many years of commitment to the board. Both have worked tirelessly for the bdla and the interests of the bdla in various positions since 2010. While Sabine Scherer has represented the employees/civil servants on the board from the very beginning and has accompanied the Lower Saxony competition "Unser Dorf hat Zukunft" (Our Village has a Future) with great commitment on the jury during this time, Petra Schoelkopf has worked on the board first as an advisory member and then as deputy chair from 2012. For the state association, she also provided significant advice and active support to the planners' deck of the Chamber of Architects. In the federal association, her ideas and knowledge were in demand in the public relations working group, where she was particularly involved in setting up the online format "Landschaftsarchitektur heute" (Landscape Architecture Today) and designing the bdla homepage. She will continue her honorary work in the working group public relations.

Kerstin Liesecke was re-elected for a period of two years for the office of the cash auditor.

The board and management were discharged and the budget for 2020 was adopted. Gotthard Storz particularly addressed the cooperation with the chamber, the promotion of young people, the use of digital media at the next events and the continuation of the topic "Green infrastructure in town and country". For this purpose, an informative and diverse event took place in Verden directly before the general meeting, which the bdla N B significantly contributed to within the framework of its membership in the network Baukultur in Niedersachsen.

The detailed minutes of the members' meeting will soon be available in the protected members' area.
