The major district town of Aue is planning to improve the range of industrial and commercial sites and acquire plots in the area of the freight railway yards for economic development purposes. The sustainable conversion of the urban mining site (formerly pit 20) on the railway site therefore required the drawing-up of a subsequent use concept that would comprise an investigation of different options, taking account of development and the associated costs.

Design is about integrating all aspects relating to the conditions of the site, the needs of the users, the expectations of the client and the demands of society and the environment into a unified and spatially functioning concept. To reduce the design aspects of the creation of urban spaces to formal considerations risks missing the point of what design is about.

Open Pit Welzow-Süd is one of the few mining areas of Lusatia where mining will continue for several decades. The landscape will successively be destructed and recultivated. Recultivation aims for a reestablishment of agricultural and forestall areas which will need a long period of soil development before being a productive landscape again.

The region of Freiberg is characterized by an 800-year-old history of mining and metallurgical industry. Reducing the ore deposits and the metallurgical processes led to anthropogenicmontane arsenic- and heavy metal accumulation in the topsoil. In addition to the already elevated geogenic levels a large scale of soil contaminants throughout the area of Freiberg has evolved. In particularly critical areas of problems with sensitive uses are inevitable. This includes also the agricultural sector. Especially in such areas cultivation of biomass crops is a useful alternative to food and feed crops.

Tourism along the Styrian iron road is dominated by the attractions in Leoben
and by the absolutely “lighthouse” of the region, the Styrian iron mountain. In
winter many people join the alpine skiing around “Präbichl”.
All the other touristical attractions have a comparable low touristical evectiveness. If tourism shall became an important economical factor in the
region new ideas must be developed. How is it possible to strengthen the
touristical value of regional resources and regional characteristics.
This paper gives a short overview about tourism in the region and lists important projects of a possible development in the future.

This document contains an analysis of the issues connected with the treatment of plots in the Hrušov zone, owned by the Statutory City of Ostrava and the RPG Company. The Hrušov zone is currently in a devastated condition and has been classified as a so-called brownfield. The Statutory City of Ostrava and the RPG Company therefore are considering the revitalisation of the Hrušov zone. For this purpose they have defined two preliminary scenarios, which could serve for the revitalisation of the affected area.

The aim of this study was the development of a valuation method for mining brownfields, which takes into account the essential aspects of mining. After a thorough analysis of all major mining factors that highly influence the value of real estate, a calculation was proposed which takes into account the above-mentioned uncertainties and risks. This calculation was
based on the fuzzy logic, whose elements have degrees of membership.
