Abstract

As proposed by the URBEM proposal, the new tool to assess the potential for urban watercourse rehabilitation is to be tested on case study sites, chosen for WP 3. Deviating from this proposal, in agreement with HR Wallingford an alternative case study site was chosen. The site was found to be in the stage of assessing potential for rehabilitation options and therefore most suitable for the proposed test. Further reasons included: • overlapping ongoing planning: EU - Urban redevelopment program (EFRE and LUDA), district redevelopment program (Altplauen), Flood Control Concept Weisseritz (resulting from flood in August 2002) and therefore a very good information pool. • diverse existing concepts (student projects, …) and interests of stakeholders, which create a “reality situation” for the testing of the tool. • the “Tool to assess social appraisal”, another tool of the URBEM project, has been tested at the site, providing information on how the site and the river as well as some concepts are appraised by residents The test of the tool is based on the draft tool description (HR Wallingford, 2003) delivered in February 2004. The test aims at analysing the practicability of the proposed concept. The test emphasises: • Plausibility of single steps. • Plausibility of the sequence of working steps. • Dynamic of procedure.
