The council of the city of Göttingen has been discussing for some time to give parking in public spaces a price. Part of the discussion is the parking space in front of the front doors of the citizens of Göttingen. So far, parking there has cost nothing, in the future fees could be charged. Why this is not a deterioration, but fair, shows the following paper that we have linked here.
Göttingen continues to struggle with rising rental prices. The rent increases are particularly large for private multi-storey apartments in the portfolio. This is a real problem: after all, this is where the greatest potential for socially acceptable rents lies. Our specialist for construction and housing, Christina-Johanne Schröder, explains which decisions are necessary at the state and federal level so that fair rents succeed in cities like Göttingen.
We discuss how we can make owners more accountable, strengthen tenants’ own initiative, improve neighbourhoods, create new living space and prevent homelessness. What role the qualified rent index, the Housing Protection Act and the Housing Misappropriation Ordinance play in this, you will learn in the context of our event.

The city of Göttingen will receive 475 million euros in 2021. The expenditure amounts to around 500 million euros. Time to save, you might think. However, we are convinced that we need to invest wisely right now in order to buffer the consequences of the corona crisis a little. It is clear to us that people are more important than money and that is why we are investing a total of 44 million euros in education, social cohesion and climate protection. Our city should continue to be habitable in the future, offer quality of stay and create secure jobs with fair pay. We are committed to good schools and daycare centers, a future for everyone who wants to live in our city and affordable housing. You can read about the projects we are tackling as part of the 2021 budget expenditure >>here<<.
Germany’s inner cities are changing in order to remain attractive and well positioned in the future. But what does that mean? What does a city centre have to look like in the future in order to continue to meet the demands of visitors, traders and residents?
The most important and exciting places in our city center, where something should change or have already been made, we would like to take a look at during a city walk with you. We start at 4 pm at Gänseliesel. (Bitte thinks of your mouth-nose covering, which must be worn during this walk. In addition, we will pay attention to the necessary distance to each other!)
In addition, on the same day from 6.30 p.m., the renowned architect and urban planner Wolfgang Christ of the Urban INDEX Institute GmbH will give us an online keynote speech on the future of the city center.
Afterwards, we will discuss with you and actors of the city society online on the basis of photos of the tour how we can shape the future of our Göttingen city center.
Also present: Doreen Fragel, des. GREEN candidate for the office of Lord Mayor Moderation: Dr. Dagmar Sakowsky, GRÜNE im Rat der Stadt Göttingen
Registrations for this event are now possible directly >>here<< via the form. Please indicate whether you will participate in the city walk, the discussion or both.
We are looking forward to an exciting event with you and you!

How we as designers of our environment create ideal living conditions not only for ourselves, but also for flora and fauna, is the central question that we would like to illuminate in our webinar on 15.6. with our experts and with you.
