Grosseto - Territorial Plan of Coordination

Grosseto: Territorial Plan of Coordination

The formulation of the Territorial Plan of Coordination (TPC) had its start in the 1995, after the enactment of the Region Law nr 5/95 about the government of the territory, which specified contents and procedures of the Law nr 142/90.
In the TPC, founded on a systematic involvement of the local administrations, is defined the subdivision of the territory in homogeneous areas (the seven towns of Maremma) to organize settlement policies and suitable strategies, fixing criteria of settlement development (option for a model of low use of soil, guardianship of the no-built coast areas, concentration and qualitative development of the yielding settlement, safeguard of the historical tracks, etc) up to directions for the enviromental patrimony management in its various facets. The plan has been drawn up to guarantee the guardianship of the essential natural resources of this district for a maintenable and tenable development, coordinating functions and instruments of programming and planning either of this office or of different Town Councils involved together and specially of a single town council. The TPC represents the reference point for all the other corporations working in this area and it connects among them territorial policies of general character with more specific ones. The TPC will be carried out through the adjustment of the municipal instruments to the contents concerning the ordinary management of the territory, through proper deeds undersigned by this office for what concerns its jurisdiction, and through agreements and arrangements about the programme or the planning for a coordinate and complete accomplishment of strategic actions of provincial importance.
Since the 1st Planning Conference of the TPC (April 1996) either the presentation or the general policy and the strategies of the plan itself have been made known to the local corporations, the regional administration office of Tuscany, associations and private citizens. The plan fixes the common principles through which it's essential to coordinate, to verify and to integrate all the single municipal strategies, establishing network policies in order to strengthen the identity of the provincial territory and the identification of a model of an overall development, adjusted to the territorial inclinations and to its settelment system. The general policies had been fixed in the project planning phase, in the meeting during the 2nd Planning Conference and in the further deeds till its approval (April 1999).
The choices and the specific purposes of this provincial instruments can be resumed in three broad territorial policies: balance between coast and hinterland, widespread development all over the provincial territory and increasing the enviromental resources value.
Trying to reconcile the development of the territory and the value incresing of this landscape patrimony (ensuring either its economic development or the preservation) this administration, through the TPC (valid also as a territorial town-planning instrument with a specific consideration for the enviromental and landscape values), had subdivided the area in landscape 'systems and units'; had pointed out features and qualities of the resources; had fixed precepts; had planned strategic policies for homogeneous ambits distinguishing the enviromental features (historical settlements and lanscapes) from the yielding ones; had studied long-term predictable solutions; had identified actions for the achievement of specific development aims to be verified in a short term. The Plan is constituted by four distinct parts: Report, Regulations, Forms and Cartography. The report provides criteria for a more conscious reading of the Plan itself and resumes knowledges and main worked out choices. The regulations are divided in: 'Structuration' (the focusing of the agreed decision and of the general behaviour criteria in a long term: Constitution), Adjustment (course and check of the conversion activities that can be updated in short terms, according to the results: Code) and Planning (identification of provincial importance action strategies and thier application for the achievement of agreed aims: Programme). The technical forms with course details and informations include integrations to the municipal planning regulations. In general the TPC regulation structure tries to give adjusted room and course to the municipal town-planning. The synthesis skill of the Cartography (Water and Soil, Territory and Landscape, Strategic Actions) helps to consider the TPC as a general policies plan which will be carried out through the municipal town-planning.
All the parts of the TPC will be updated and checked every two years. The wide spreading and availability of this provincial instrument in all its formation and definition phases had led to the creation of a proper Internet site and a CD-Rom. The systematical organization of the informatons will be used to set up the Geographic Information System of the province, ensuring the constant updating and the useful exchange among the involved corporations either about its contents interpretation or their valutation.
