As part of the revitalization of an 10 ha area near the historic centre of Pardubice, we have organised whole process including urban competition through urban workshop. Before the workshop there were conducted individual interviews and profiles of 18 key stakeholders and owners in the area. These actors then met at 2 round tables where they discussed a common vision of development. We  regularly informed public on activities and outcomes through an information campaign.

Based on collected data, a competitive workshop was prepared and implemented. Thanks to this workshop we selected the author of the land regulation plan and  defined widely shared vision of Mlýnský ostrov development. So the winner of the competition workshop subsequently drew this vision into the form of a land regulation plan. "
