Neighbourhood management for aspern Vienna's Urban Lakeside
aspern Vienna's Urban Lakeside is on everyone's lips as Vienna's biggest and most ambitious housing development. Since January 2014, the project consortium consisting of Caritas, the social welfare NGO of the Archdiocese of Vienna, and PlanSinn together with their two partners abz*austria and tatwort has been running the neighbourhood management centre at Urban Lakeside, a contact point and meeting place for residents and neighbours of the development. The focus is on cultivating neighbourliness and community spirit in the Urban Lakeside development and on forging links between old and new neighbourhoods. The shared commitment and enthusiasm of the residents has resulted in the successful implementation of projects on neighbourhood relations, open space, mobility, social affairs, culture and lots more besides. PlanSinn's tasks include fostering participation, sustainable urban development and cooperative project management. News and up-to-date information about the project can be found on the neighbourhood management team's blog.
