Abstract: The goal of this research project is to indicate how peoples’ needs for and expectations towards local recreation areas can be met by means of employing different formal and informal planning instruments. The examined instruments are also evaluated regarding their applicability for conflict resolution between locals, seeking recreation and other interests on land use. Further, the project investigates how a communication and cooperation process may improve the explanatory power and acceptance of planning instruments compared to the present code of practice. Four case studies within the Swiss agglomerations of Zurich, Basle and Winterthur illustrate the functional capacity of the analyzed planning instruments. The evaluations of these case studies lead to recommendations concerning future implementation of the various planning instruments.
