Governing Compact Cities

How to Connect Planning, Design and Transport

Philipp Rode

Governing Compact Cities investigates how governments and other critical actors organise to enable compact urban growth, combining higher urban densities, mixed use and urban design quality with more walkable and public transport-oriented urban development. Philipp Rode draws on empirical evidence from London and Berlin to examine how urban policymakers, professionals and stakeholders have worked across disciplinary silos, geographic scales and different time horizons since the early 1990s.

Chapter 4: Berlin: integrating multi-level metropolitan governance

How to Connect Planning, Design and Transport

Philipp Rode

Extract

This chapter presents the findings for Berlin. It introduces the distinct system of government and institutional arrangements that have had an impact on and potentially enhanced the integration of urban planning, city design and transport policies. It explores integration structures as well as changes thereof that may have facilitated planning and policy integration in Berlin. This account cuts across the administrative geography of the metropolitan region as well as the distribution of sectoral planning and policy powers across national, regional, city and district/neighbourhood levels. Special attention is given to network governance approaches based on involving a large set of stakeholders and the relationship between hierarchical and network integration. The chapter goes on to explore the integration processes and relevant adjustments that facilitated the linking of land-use planning, city design and transport. The final section cuts across integration instruments and enabling conditions.
