The case of Halandri is an example of how local, regional and international cooperation through EU-funded networking can give the opportunity to local administrations to develop specific planning and policy tools for sustainable urban development and to improve their operational capacity. ‘Green Life in the City of Halandri’ is one of the projects implemented with ERDF support, related to the Local Action Plan elaborated in the framework of the URBACT II RegGov Fast Track Network.

Executive summary

This case is an example of how local, regional and international cooperation through EU-funded networking can give the opportunity to local administrations to develop specific planning and policy tools for sustainable urban development and to improve their operational capacity. Furthermore, by funding a number of local development projects the ERDF is supporting the Municipality of Halandri to implement, step by step, the Local Action Plan for the area of Patima elaborated in the framework of the URBACT II RegGov Fast Track Thematic Network.

In 2008 the municipality of Halandri became part of the Thematic Network for ‘Regional Governance of Sustainable Integrated Development of Deprived Urban Areas’ (RegGov). The delivery of an integrated Local Action Plan for a disadvantaged neighbourhood of each partner’s city, with the participation of local actors, was an integral component of the three-year learning process.

The main objective of the creation of a Local Action Plan (LAP) for Patima was the elaboration of a sustainable urban strategy for an area with important problems of under-development in terms of urban infrastructure, public utility networks and public spaces, due to the rapid urbanisation it had undergone in the last 10 years. The ERDF-funded project ‘Green Life in the City of Halandri’, which delivered a new public square in the area of Patima, is one of the steps taken to implement the priorities identified in the LAP. ERDF support for the entire project amounts to €1 020 000 and was delivered through the Attica Operational Programme.

Other projects already implemented or under way in the area, with ERDF support or the municipality’s own funds, include sewerage and drainage infrastructure, flood protection systems and educational and social infrastructure.

The task of delivering a concrete Action Plan with the participation of local stakeholders, together with a substantial and fruitful collaboration with international partners both from competitiveness and convergence regions, has been a very significant legacy for Halandri. Furthermore, close cooperation with the IMA of Attica Region through the Fast Track labelling has been important for the improvement of the municipal agencies’ competences and the formation of a methodology for participative integrated planning that can be transferred and used in other areas.
