Abstract

Tremendously high dynamics of urban development where growth and shrinkage processes occur at the same time and can recently be observed in cities of many Central and Eastern European countries. Suburbanisation is going along with an expansion of residential and commercial areas at the urban fringe. In this particular case it is simultaneously observed and interacts with an overall declining population and a stagnating economy as a consequence of de-industrialisation (i). As a diverging development inner cities with their compact urban form suffer from this decline in population density and are affected by an increase of residential vacancy as well as commercial brownfields (ii). In this context the gradient from the central urban area to the suburban region is focused to find specific indicators characterising this phenomenon. Such indicators comprise land use changes as well as changes in population, commerce and employment even on the smallest administrative unit (iii). In the developed methodology statistical information from all administrative districts, classification and spatial change detection for pervious and impervious surfaces derived from remote sensing data between 1994 and 2005 are analysed. Goal is an instrument to support evaluation procedures for collaborative authorities to judge where and how fast open spaces come into existence and which densification tasks or open green management should be undertaken (iv). The analysis aims at highlighting the development potentials of the whole regional gradient without the limitation of single administrative boundaries. Therefore neighbouring local authority areas can make use of the instrument.
