Business activity and quality of life in urban areas

Findings Report Abstract

Description

 

The co-existence of economic activities and housing in urban areas has often led to overgrowth of business activity with serious repercussions on the quality of life of the inhabitants. Such a case arose in the Dilaveri coastal zone in Piraeus, where the residents complained about excessive sound pollution and the occupation of common spaces in an area characterized as a “traditional settlement” governed by special building requirements and restrictions. Despite the fact that the Greek Ombudsman called for the elaboration and approval of a special land use plan, the Municipality of Piraeus opted for a simple change in the construction boundary in a specific building block, while designating public access areas elsewhere, equivalent to the illegally expanded leisure buildings.
