Project objectives:
The development of regular integrated action plans on sustainable land management and the realisation of projects demonstrating practical solutions by 
local and regional stakeholders are important for Central European regions. Therefore partners of the CircUse project will work on this new Circular Flow
Land Use Management concept in coherence with the implementation of instruments and pilot actions. CircUse also will be strongly influenced by the goal to create climate beneficial land use structures – either by passive contributions on energy consumption
by traffic, natural soil protection or actively by energy production on land integrated in interim or final land use options. Instruments will be provided
by the concept of Circular Flow Land Use Management as an integrative policy and governance approach. CircUse will contribute to achieve the general spatial objective of 'Developing polycentric settlements structures and territorial cooperation'. This
will be adressed by the following project objectives: support of sustainable land use change (e.g. by new concepts and information tools), reduction of land consumption and inner development (e.g. by integration of planning instruments, soil protection tools and brownfield revitalisation
measures), increase of private investment in inner development (e.g. by risk transparency), coordination of public interventions and funding (including ERDF) (e.g. by local investment task forces), coordination of investments in greenfield, greyfield and brownfield sites to ensure cost efficient settlements (e. g. by local and regional planning).
Project Summary:
Circular Flow Land Use Management (CircUse) represents an integrative policy and governance approach which presupposes a changed land use philosophy with 
regard to land utilization. This modified land use philosophy can be expressed with the slogan “avoid – recycle –compensate”. See: ... This project is implemented through the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF.
