Abstract

The space temporal approach can influence the quality of use of the individual time and public space by redesigning urban space and public timetables. Time-oriented planning offers a comprehensive policy framework, integrating different sectoral policies and strategies. The city of Bergamo has developed two specific tools that reflect the municipality’s space temporal approach: the Area Governance Plan (AGP) and the Territorial Time Plan (TP). The contribution illustrates key elements of both plans, their integration of time polices with strategic spatial planning, their relation to each other and their contribution to new collaborations within the local administration. Both plans are focussing on the quality of public spaces and services as well as on the accessibility to urban spaces and services.
