Planungsverband Ballungsraum Frankfurt / Rhein-Main Manuela Hahn Control of large-scale retail trade in the metropolitan region Frankfurt / Rhine-Main Open Days, October 2007 European Week of Regions and Cities
Current situation and trends Retail space today: 2.700 000 m². Estimated demand for additional retail space until 2015: 350.000 m². Estimated excess supply of retail space until 2015 without intervention by the region: 350.000 m² + 540.000 m² = 890.000 m². We expect cut-throat competition between existing city and town centres and additional retail based in greenfield sites. Frankfurt

Need for an overall strategy An overall regional framework for retail development is required. The REHK is a spatial development programme. It will be integrated into the Regional Land Use Plan (RegFNP) and so become legally binding. This has been taken forward as the Regionales Einzelhandelskonzept (REHK).
Core REHK policy objectives Promotion of a retail development that favours city centres and urban sub-centres. Co-operation of key stakeholders beyond sectoral/municipal planning. Planning transparency and reliability as well as long-term planning stability for our 75 municipalities, investors and politicians. Improvement of business and trade in the region in order to strengthen balanced polycentric urban structures.
REHK in detail Fostering of central shopping districts in city centres and urban sub-centres, such as large-scale retail facilities with a wide range of consumer goods. Fostering of complementary retail locations focusing on large scale retail facilities with a range of goods that is atypical for city centres (building material, furniture…) Fostering local retailers in addition to central retail areas in order to lay out a foundation for diverse local supply structures. Where necessary retaining large-scale retail agglomerations in industrial areas but no further development. A M /A/B/C DDD
