Car-Free Neighbourhoods: the Münster example. Excerpt from the Conference| Changing Conduct: European Ideas for Car-Free Neighbourhoods Wednesday, September 22, 2010. McGill University, Montreal. Organized by the Montreal Urban Ecology Centre [] In this excerpt Here is the complete description of the car-free residential settlement project: “Garden City Weißenburg” in the inner city of Münster, the bicycle capital of Germany. The settlement comprises 200 residential units, is located 2.5 km south of the city centre and is connected to it by a net of cycle paths. There is also many bus options to get to the city centre and a car-sharing station is located right outside of the perimeter of the settlement. Dr.-Ing. Ulrike Reutter also describes the regulatory framework (such as a tenancy contract) that ensures the long-term vision behind this car-free settlement and the factors of success. Description Dr.-Ing.
