Planning non-urban settlements – the method and elements of the method for designing renewal plans
The human being is becoming more important as a focal point, where all routes begin, end or cross. Changes which occur around one, include all of the space, which cannot be nationally defined. In such a framework, temporality and flexibility are the prevailing and decisive components of new spatial organisation. For this reason we cannot rely upon and/or repeat traditional models. The article is based on examples, which include the development component, and through them we can understand changes and redesign of structures in relation to substance. New development in settlements is under the influence of the existing structure which through legal prerequisites permits or hinders changes and growth of settlements. Any intervention in the structure changes the existing settlements pattern. Understanding the dynamic growth of settlements therefore has to become the basis of new renewal plans that can facilitate rapid reaction by constant changes and adaptation thus differing from traditional static plans which define the final state.
