LIFE LUGO+ BIODYNAMIC "Planning a multi-ecological neighbourhood as a model of urban resilience" is a highly innovative initiative in the European urban context centred on the scale of neighbourhoods and residential areas that places the city of Lugo at the forefront of sustainable urban planning. This sustainable planning includes innovative and inclusive measures aimed at mitigating and adapting to climate change in the European urban context, which will also actively involve the city's population. This type of planning will be a way to make the city a safer, healthier, greener and more liveable place for citizens and visitors, creating numerous new development opportunities.
Since the beginning of 2016, the City Council of Lugo has been coordinating this European project LIFE LUGO + BYODYNAMIC, in collaboration with the University of Santiago de Compostela, the Provincial Council of Lugo and the Technical University of Madrid. The LIFE Lugo+Biodynamic project takes place in the context of the EU's LIFE Climate Change Adaptation programmes, as part of the climate actions: MEASURES FOR MITIGATION AND ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE.
The main objective of the LIFE LUGO+ BIODYNAMIC project is "To establish in a practical way in the City of Lugo an innovative urban planning strategy aimed at intermediate scale actions in residential neighbourhoods and areas in order to achieve resilient urban spaces adapted to the consequences and effects of climate change". The AREA OF ACTION of the LIFE LUGO+ BIODYNAMIC project is located within the scope of the "GREEN BELT " which involves the whole city, from the West to the Northwest, following the river courses of Miño, Rato and Fervedoira, and whose forecast is included in the General Urban Planning Plan (PXOM-2011), within the new Territorial Planning Model, which is designed for the City. Its environmental and landscape planning will be approached based on the identification and management of the city's Green Linear Park and the design of a Strategic for Ecological Infrastructures.
