A settlement development strategy helps a municipality to define its medium- to long-term spatial and structural development and shows how it complies with requirements of the cantonal development plans. Working together with representatives of the municipality of Thayngen, we determined ways to achieve high-quality inward settlement development while preserving the unique character of local districts. We placed special value on the retention of open and green spaces, while developing smart municipal responses to future traffic challenges.
