Planning Guidelines for Gravel Extraction Sites and Landfills

While the Canton of Zurich’s Spatial Development Office is responsible for all design plans for gravel extraction areas and landfills, various cantonal offices and agencies also participate in the process. We worked together with those responsible from the specialist departments to identify the challenges of the process and sought solutions in working group meetings. The aim was to standardise and optimize the relevant internal procedures.
