The Urban Development Plan 2005, which will remain in force for the ensuing 10 to 15 years, defines 13 target areas that overlap existing political district boundaries. In a panel discussion the “Target Area Gürtel” will be examined as a model for the application of these future plans in terms of both organisation and content.

In 2001, in response to a special wish on the part of the Mayor of Vienna, this area was adopted as part of the government programme and also formed part of a EU programme until 1999. Today the process of improving the Gürtel, which was started more than 30 years ago, is still being continued.

Contributions by all the relevant protagonists – citizens, business people, administrators, experts etc. – are coordinated in order to harmonise the different social, cultural, traffic planning, and economic measures with each other.
