Land should be used in a manner that is resource efficient, adapted to local preconditions, where existing and new housing is interlinked to achieve a physically interlocking and socially integrated town.
2. Cultural values
Existing cultural values and a living culture history should, as far as possible, be utilised and maintained as a precondition for the development and integration of a new settlement.
Prerequisites for wide diversity and variation in the formulation as well as functional mix (housing, services, culture and workplaces) should be created while taking into consideration the surrounding housing environment.
A good living environment, which allows social activity and involves as little ecological footprint as possible, should be prepared for residents, workers and visitors.
