The report collects reasons for the endangerment of open spaces in the pilot sites. It gives indications of planning gaps and problems for safeguarding open spaces there at local and regional level.
The final report presents the implementation strategies for safeguarding open spaces in the six pilot sites. The most important problems and planning gaps, a map of open spaces, the main objectives and the actions needed for better safeguarding open spaces are described for each pilot site.
The report presents the results of transnational workshops. It discusses how the alpine-wide mapping of multifunctional open spaces can be used for spatial planning. Furthermore, it reveals the most important open space functions to be harmonised within the three cross-border case study areas.
The report describes the transferability of discussed instruments for safeguarding open spaces in each OpenSpaceAlps pilot site. It explains facilitating and hindering framework conditions for transferring instruments for safeguarding open spaces and summarizes the most important ones. A pairwise comparison gives hints about which instruments and elements could be the best for harmonization within the three cross-border case study areas.
Report provides a list of the most important criteria for open spaces, which are less protected by sectoral laws and which should be considered in spatial planning. We present criteria for landscape permeability/ ecological connectivity, for the preservation of agricultural areas, and for near natural and recreational areas, which can be a starting point for harmonised transnational open space planning.
