1. Introduction
1.1. Vision description
The development plan 2012 of Saxony indicates “Efficient land use and reducing of land
consumption”.
The significance of land consumption and the need of land management are increasing.
Since 2008 the Free State of Saxony is working on the goal on the reduction of land
consumption. In 2009 the government noticed this action programme and defined the
target for Saxony to reduce the daily land consumption under 2 ha until 2020. To reach
this goal a “inter ministerial working group (IMAG)” has been implemented.
Vision: The region of Saxony and the city of Freiberg, as one of the leading cities of
innovative environmental actions and research, supports the principle of Circular Land
Management and will be model city for the regional development targets of Saxony.
1.2. Mission definition
Support to the inter-ministerial working group by the introduction of circular flow land use
management as tool for sustainable city development, climate and soil protection in the
context of the management of demographic change.
Implementation of the CircUse land management system in the City of Freiberg
Pilot project realisation in 2012: Former Porcelain manufacture “Porzelline” in Freiberg (see
Figure 3)
1.3. Objectives definition
Regional level:
Statement in the new saxonian development plan (LEP 2012) according to Circular
Land Management as guiding development target
Qualification of indicators and targets on land consumption based for the regional
development plan based on CircUse methodological approach
Recommendations on the Integration of land cycle aspects in local integrated urban
development concepts (INSEK)
Development of a data management tool for Saxony
Stakeholder awareness rising by workshops

2.1.1. Brainstorming “Pilot site”
First discussions on the pilot site in the pilot area “municipality of Freiberg” started in
December 2010.
Therefore discussions with local stakeholders took place in January 2011. Because of the
interest of the Free State of Saxony and the interest of municipality the focus for the pilot
site was on the former railway station in the city of Freiberg. Because of proceedings with
the DB-AG and the time scale of the project PP 4 switched during the end of 2011 in
discussion with site owner and stakeholder to the “Freiberger Porcelain manufacture”. Here
also first meetings took place.
After the first planning by External Expert of PP4 a small workshop with local stakeholders,
site owner and lord mayor and mayors took place at the beginning of March 2012.

Workshop/Discussion with SAXONIA about existing documents and analysis of the

th
of December 2011
– Workshop Higher level
administration (WP3)
At the beginning Dr. Erik Nowak (leader of IMAG
(see chapter 1.1)) presented a general introduction
on the
state of the Art in Saxony and focused on the
main topic – data collection - to reach the goal
“reduction the land consumption”.
Then by presentations of the Saxon State office of
for Environment, Agriculture and Geology (PP4) the
five working packages have been shown. Because of
dialogue’s focus on WP 3, ToRs (3.1.1), “Fieldwork
record sheet” and Database (3.2.2-7) had been
presented more intensively. During the breaks the
database was tested by the attendees. The
participants of workshop are very interested in the
results of the CircUse work packages and confirmed
the results of PP4 for the ongoing work. In addition
to this the external expert of PP4 presented the
main affords of WP 4 and 5 and also a first overview
of the pilot site and the action plan of WP 5.
In the discussion the whole group agreed that the work of CircUse is necessary for
the communal and regional collection of site information with the focus on
“greenfields, under used land, gaps and brownfields”. The different levels of
information will be discussed at the next meetings. Also a regional state wide data
collection of potential sites will be taken into account.
The targets of WP 4 CircUse “agency” (Bärnbach, Piekary) and pilot sites (WP5) will
be prepared by PP4 and the External Expert for the next group meeting at the 16
th
of
January 2012.

Stakeholder Workshop on CircUse and pilot site
activity. With this first internal workshop the next
step on implementing the action plan and pilot
activity took place. So the CircUse work packages
and the actual activities of WP 3 have been
presented. The external expert of PP4 presented the
activities in the pilot site and first drafts for a future

2.2. Assumptions
Political support by current regional and local priorities
Continuity in the AGENDA 21 process in Freiberg.
Freiberg did already take part in another Brownfield site management project in
2006. The participation of the public did also take place, while cities in Saxony can
participate at the competition “Ab in die Mitte” (“up to the middle”), were Freiberg
take place mostly every year with ideas and planning drafts of places, quarters and
tangents according to the thematic headline.
Also the participation in the EU URBACT project “LINKS” the energetic rehabilitation
of inner-city heritage buildings and quarters is focused. Here also different kind
public participation take place directly in the ULSG or in the development of the
example inner-city quarter, where the energetic restoration of used, underused and
unused buildings will be focused on. In the AGENDA 21 process in Freiberg also two
unused inner-city sites have been developed by public participation to playgrounds.
2.3. Identification of dependencies
Investment funding: Decision on the regional level

3. Management structure for the City of Freiberg and the
pilot project
3.1. Pilot project description
The former porcelain factory in Freiberg is located
within the industrial site "Davidschacht" on the
northeastern outskirts of the town.
“Davidschacht” is one out of five industrial sites
of Freiberg. The former porcelain factory covers
an area of 4,5 hectares from which about one-
third (11,000 m²) are built on.
Until 1969 the whole industrial site was operated
on mining until this was discontinued for reasons
of economy. Parts of the land were sold to
several private re-users in 1990, which used it or
still use it for commercial purposes. The land use
plan of 1998 designates the entire site as a
commercial area
Six buildings located on the grounds of the
former porcelain factory are planned to be
demolished. Only the listed main building (built in
1889), a breaker and the production facility will
retain.
The access to the area in general is classified as
deficient. The access roads are mostly very
narrow and / or have poor surface properties. A
residual landfill of the former porcelain factory
and the adjacent “Erzwäscheteich” (ore washer
pond) (containing approximately 2,000 m³ of
heavy metal contaminated mud) are classified as
potentially contaminated sites.
Based on
a pooled inventory usage scenarios will
be developed and a development plan will be
submitted as part of CircUse.

3.5. Action plan list
Action 1.1: Implementation of data management
As shown on page 5 first discussion with the municipality of Freiberg on implementing a
land use
management tool started in March 2011. This was the basis for the next meetings
between PP4 and the department of city development of the municipality of Freiberg in Mid
of July 2011. With the field record sheet the different site potentials based on the “Terms of
Reference” in the pilot area were collected. At this meeting the maps and the collected data
had been discussed. The fieldwork data were imported into the land use management tool
and saved for the use in the municipality for further planning processes.
Until the meeting with the higher level administration in December 2011 the municipality
(as local level) made a data check and first evaluation of the field data and necessitates on
the data management tool.
