On February 25th, 2010, the conference "Sustainable Land Use Policy " took place in Schloss Waldthausen near Mainz.
Within the scope of this conference new ways were presented for Rhineland-Palatinate towards a sustainable land use policy for the municipalities in Rhineland-Palatinate. In doing so, the focus should not be directed at abstract policy goals, but to show how the state government as a whole supports the municipalities with this future task in times of demographic change. 

The purpose of this event was to present suitable tools for a sustainable development of settlements to the local decision-makers by identifying and activating the intrinsic potential of the settlements. The advantages of the fixed embedding of a "follow-up cost calculator" in municipal planning were also presented.
