Swimming pool or orchard, the transformation of a green locality in the south of Prague proposed study
The landscape study will be prepared by the Institute of Planning and Development of the Capital City of Prague (IPR) according to the decision of the municipality. The creation represents work planned for the next few analyzes.
Experts have been discussing the form of the untouched area surrounded by housing estates for a long time.
“We will follow up on a number of considerations and studies of the Trojmezí site. We are looking for the potential and possibilities of various characters of nature, rest and recreation. We will combine everything in the design of the study, which will emphasize respecting the wide Botič valley, maximum protection of unstoppable areas around watercourses and stabilization of the compactly built-up area around Trojmezí, “said Deputy Mayor Petr Hlaváček (United Forces for Prague).
The hitherto neglected corners of Trojmezí are to change, for example the Sady horticultural youths. Some time ago, there was a homeless camp in these places, created from tents and temporary buildings. Two years ago, the police even dealt with the fire emergency shelter and the murder of its tenant.
One of the ways to enrich this place is a biotope swimming pool and the creation of a public community garden. According to the ideas, the region can also be crossed by new routes for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders.
Sensitive with water
“We want to maintain environmentally friendly agriculture in the area. The study will therefore propose appropriate measures for sensitive water and land management. Large areas of fields should be divided by alleys and draws to prevent erosion. We will also cooperate with the Toulcův Dvůr Education Center, which is one of the most important activities in the ecological area, ”director Ondřej Boháč, director of the intention to prepare the IPR study.
Water retention in the area will be solved by ditches, overhangs and furrows slowing down the outflow of rainfall.
The study is divided into two parts – analytical and design. The first touches on the condition of the landscape and the soil. It will also deal with the connection of existing retention tanks. Based on this analysis, the location of leisure activities that do not require extensive construction work will be examined.
The processing of both parts of the study should take two years. The IPR envisages that any step regarding Trojmezim’s plans will be discussed with the town halls, landowners or civic initiatives concerned. “We are also preparing our own opinion on the Trojmezí issue,” said the mayor of Prague 15, Milan Wenzl (YES).
The new study will accept the existing cycle routes and the planned infrastructure.
“The campaign will also include a survey collecting suggestions, guided walks and a planning container on site,” says IPR.
A remarkable place
Trojmezí, a large undeveloped piece of landscape, has attracted extraordinary interest from developers in the last 15 years or so. However, this is the resistance of the locals, as well as the town halls concerned.
“Private owners, investors and developers are interested in resolving the area in some form, and so are the citizens,” said the mayor of the Prague 11 district, Jiří Dohnal (Pirates).
A landscape study and the purchase of land for the green zone can take care of the Trojmezí issue, but at the same time leave room for possible construction.
“The point is that the largest possible area of this area remains unstoppable, in the leisure variant. This means a sports ground, a park, the revitalization of the cherry tree, the Gardening Youth Orchards and the like, which is the task of the mentioned study. And because it’s a large area, I think there’s some room for development. But it must be appropriate, defensible, and in the final, the people and the town hall must agree, ”Jiří Dohnal described his ideas.
The Prague City Council recently approved a draft Memorandum of Cooperation with City Halls, according to which it will seek to gain land that is owned by the owners’ privacy.
