One of the basic concepts of the current city administration is that Prague should not expand into the fields but should instead use the undeveloped areas within the city. Although the city has been following this concept for several years now, it has had virtually no effect on the events in the Central Bohemian Region, and so just beyond the city border, there is uncoordinated growth of villages, often without basic amenities. Locals then drive to Prague for work and put a strain on Prague’s public amenities. However, the cooperation with the new administration of theCentral Bohemian Region creates new opportunities to coordinate developmentprojects, whether in the area of traffic, residential development, or the landscape. The head of the office, Filip Foglar, has been dealing with this topic on an academic level for a long time and has been continuously working on this issue with IPR. Now it is possible to translate the results of the joint work into political reality. We are continually updating and presenting our research and materials on many occasions and at many conferences.
