Calitatea mediului și a vieții în cartierele urbane (Romanian)
The BEACON project translated and adapted the German Environment Agency’s guidance brochure on municipal planning for Romania. With a view to foster sustainable urban environments with a high quality of life, the document synthesises the findings of a research report built on eight case studies covering both existing buildings and new constructions. The brochure shows how a high building density and a great variety of different uses can be reconciled with a high quality of environment and living. The focus is on topics such as securing and reclaiming spaces for urban greenery, reducing traffic-related noise and pollutant pollution, and climate-friendly area development.
