Map 04.11.3 Measures

In the third main level of PHK 2015, 413 individual combinations of 30 different measures and planning instructions have been assigned to around 45,000 partial block areas and road sections. With 312 different measures combinations, a major part of this falls on the settlement areas, which also becomes clear in the area background of the individual measures. Moreover, 88 different measures combinations are assigned to green/open spaces, 12 to the spatial unit of public roads, paths and places as well as 1 to water bodies.

The assignment of measures depends upon the area type, the individual evaluations in the main map as well as in the supplementary planning instructions and some additional technical and geo-information. Based on the scale for the entire city, not all area specifications could be included comprehensively in the analysis so that the results summarised in Table 2 are to be understood as suggestions, which need to be checked and substantiated again when viewing an actual area or a specific measure (= search areas). In this context, there should also be an in-depth discussion on the supporting instruments and tools for implementing the measures.

Detailed statements for the 30 individual measures can be taken from the accompanying document of PHK (SenStadtUm 2015). More information can also be taken from the Urban Development Plan of Berlin for Climate and its substantiation (under preparation) (SenStadtUm 2011), the Climate Booklet for Urban Development (MVI 2012) as well as the Manual of Urban climate (MUNLV 2010).
