Berlin (dpa / bb) – The SPD, the Greens and the Left in Berlin want to address some particularly important points in their coalition negotiations on Friday. The so-called umbrella group, which consists of top politicians from the three parties, has tackled the issues of urban development, building and renting. Mobility should also be discussed, the topic will be on the agenda on Wednesday.
In their exploratory paper, the three parties, who have been ruling together since 2016, already had the construction of 20,000 new apartments per year and 200,000 apartments by 2030. But there are still plenty of unanswered questions in detail. This includes how many social housing should be among the new buildings. Further questions are where plots for new building projects should come from or how we can accelerate existing planning for larger settlements.
The coalitionists want to counteract the rise in rents and the shortage of affordable housing with more housing. A major hurdle for the main negotiator is dealing with the vote for the expropriation of large housing groups in the referendum on the 26th. Many details are still open.
