The development potentials are transferred directly from the app to the database and can then be visualized in a map view. This provides all municipalities in the Main-Kinzig district with a daily updated overview of urban land reserves, a digital construction gap and vacancy register and legal protection in accordance with the building code. In order to reduce land consumption, the law requires a development “inside before outside”. On the basis of the collected data and the aREAL® software, usage concepts can then be developed together with the owners or the properties can be marketed.
With the use of the software, land consumption in the Main-Kinzig district is to be sustainably reduced in order to make a contribution to environmental and climate protection.
“Detached from the question of climate protection and internal development, I, as Head of the Economic Affairs Department, welcome the project, because it will make the potential for space transparent for businesses. In this way, jobs can be created in the future and the entire Main-Kinzig district secured as a business location,” said Winfried Ottmann, Head of Economic Affairs. “It would be desirable in the course of the implementation of the project if the municipalities in the district were to give up their church tower thinking in this way and jointly develop industrial sites where it is appropriate, because as the Main-Kinzig district, we are only perceived as a joint entity in the Rhine-Main region and can only be strong together”.
Employees of some municipalities in the district have already taken part in an introduction and training course. They come from Bad Orb, Bad Soden-Salmünster, Bruchköbel, Hanau, Maintal, Neuberg and Schlüchtern.
