Title of the report: ‘Spatial-transport study of the wider gravitational area of the section of the D427 state road from Marinići to Marišćina’
Client: Institute for Physical Planning of PGC Public Institution Rijekaprojekt d.d. Rijeka
Year compiled: 2017.

The ‘Spatial-transport study of the wider gravitational area of the section of the D427 state road from Marinići to Marišćina’ was made for the purpose of improving the transport infrastructure and interconnectedness of the wider gravitational area of the D427 state road. In addition to the road traffic also analysed were other aspects of transport with the emphasis on increasing the accessibility of public transport for passengers. The study is the first step in solving the current and expected traffic problems.

In the study an additional four-way at-grade intersection is planned at ‘Sroki – Mladenići’ on the D427 state road. Also planned is a new county road link of the existing Ž5025 and Ž5055 county roads with the D427 state road. A new intersection and new county road will significantly reduce the journey, as well as avoid passing through the densely populated area of settlements.

The increase of the number of inhabitants, expansion of settlements, as well as the planning of new public amenities at new locations requires the reorganisation of public urban transport. For the needs of reorganising the public transport of passengers a new bus terminal is planned at the location of Pogled where the change of routes and passenger transfers will be possible.

Along with the bus terminal a car park (so-called Park and Ride) is also planned for the transfer from personal vehicles to public transport.

In the study locations for the public car parks are specified which are mainly ground-level car parks, apart from the planned Viškovo garage.

In this study also proposed is the further development of cycling trails and cycling infrastructure, in other words, the construction and introduction of a system of public bicycles over the wider gravitational area of the D427 state road (a network of public bicycle stations) which could be used for recreational purposes and as a part of the system of public urban transport.

The Municipal Council of Viškovo unanimously accepted the spatial-transport study: from the media 25.11.2017.

In the Spatial Plan of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County (OG 32/13), the solar power plants of Orlec-Trinket-East and Orlec-Trinket-West are defined as buildings of county significance and the conditions for their immediate implementation are given based on the Spatial Plan of PGC.

In the ‘Development Strategy of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County 2016-2020’ the use of renewable sources of energy is encouraged as one of the measures of the development of a green economy. The mechanism of the implementation of the mentioned measure is also the planning of the development of solar power plants in the framework of the spatial-plan documentation and the preparations of the project documentation for construction.

For the needs of “attracting” investors, and for the candidature of the projects for European funds and/or for public/private partnership, in 2014 the Institute for Physical Planning of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County initiated the drafting of project documentation for obtaining of the location permit for the Orlec-Trinket-East Solar Power Plant, and in 2017 the drafting of project documentation for the Orlec-Trinket-West Solar Power Plant.

Title of the report: Programme-spatial design of the harbour open to public traffic Valbiska
Client: Institute for Physical Planning of PGC Public Institution
Creator: Rijekaprojekt d.d. Rijeka and Rožić Architects and Partners d.o.o. Rijeka
Year compiled: 2016.

The programme and spatial design of Valbiska harbour included the entire area of the harbour as well as the access road and on the basis of this design it is possible to determine the conditions for the construction, landscaping and use of the demarcated surface areas and to define the measures of the protection of the area during construction and use. With the design the current needs are covered, however, a phased upgrading is planned in view of the construction of additional berths, nevertheless, everything is in line with the spatial limits and possibilities.

The entire area is defined through determined units which are interconnected in a functional sense and together they make the entire area of the ferry port compatible. The construction, landscaping and use of demarcated surface areas are also in line with other factors of the area satisfying the basic conditions which are related to: efficiency, functionality, the compliance with other spatial units, connectivity, cost-effectiveness and safety.

In line with the proposed transport design of the harbour, the linking of most of the amenities into a single area is proposed, in other words, a new building – a Terminal.

In line with legal obligations for the needs of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, the Institute has established a Physical Planning Information System (ISPU).The system is used for the needs of:

  • the drafting, adoption, implementation and monitoring of spatial plans in the County,
  • the permanent monitoring of the situation in the area and the drafting of a report about the situation in the area and
  • the issuing of acts of physical planning and construction

The system consists of four interconnected subsystems: 1. The Register of Spatial Plans, 2. GIS database, 3. Digital archive of the spatial plans, 4. HERA (The Croatian Energy Regulatory Agency).

Primorje-Gorski Kotar County began with the introduction of a geographical information system for the area of the County back in 1995. The then County Institute for Sustainable Development and Physical Planning, based on the needs of its activities and many years of acquired experience, created its own system of gathering and storing data about the area via GIS technology. With the support of the Assembly and Executive Board, in 1998 GIS technology was accepted as the method of managing the documentation of the area and monitoring of the situation in the area, whilst the GIS database became the fundamental database about the area of the County. The application of the established method of work resulted in several large projects significant not only in county terms, but also on the level of the Republic of Croatia: the GIS database of the County, GIS database of the Adriatic, and the GIS database of spatial plans of development plans of municipalities and cities.
In conjunction with the continuation of the construction of the Physical Planning Information System for the needs of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, 2010 began with the informatisation of the implementation of the documents of physical planning via the ‘Integration of acts and documents of physical planning in Primorje-Gorski Kotar County’ project. By law the content of the data is defined which is held in the Information System. Data about the implemented acts is automatically incorporated into the database of a physical planning information system, with the aim of establishing the Physical Planning Information System in the County.

To date the developed system enables an insight into the acts of physical planning, the search and analysis of spatial documentation and an insight into the current spatial plans of a particular selected area during the issue of acts of physical planning of so-called urbanistic identification. The project for the entire area of the County was finished in 2013, and from then onwards data is being continuously added to the system, whilst the applicative system is maintained and upgraded.

The County started to be involved actively in the systematic care of abandoned animals after the request of the City of Rijeka, which, due to the territorial limitations and the characteristics of the natural and built city structures, in its administrative boundaries did not find an adequate location that would satisfy all the necessary conditions. The planning and preparation of the project was entrusted to the County Institute for Sustainable Development and Spatial Planning in 2003.
The overall activities related to the building of the "Centre" are divided into three phases:

Phase 1 – individuation of a suitable location

  • stage – comparative analysis of proposed locations and selection of the final location
  • stage – creation of spatial pre-conditions and plans for the construction 

Phase 2 – preparation for the construction

  • stage – procurement of location permits for the Centre’s complex and the infrastructure’s buildings
  • stage – procurement of construction permits (approval of the main plans) for the Centre’s complex and the infrastructure’s buildings 

Phase 3 – equipment and construction

  • stage – construction of the access road and infrastructure to the construction site,
  • stage – equipment of the construction site with infrastructure and the construction of the Centre

Up to now the County Institute led all the activities of taking care of the abandoned animals in the framework of phases 1 and 2.

In the first phase the needs and the basic characteristics of the future shelter for animals were defined, and accordingly the activities initiated as regards the search for an appropriate location for the construction of the shelter. Of the approximately ten potential locations, the three most appropriate were selected and after an intensive collaboration with the units of self-government on whose territory the locations were found the final location was selected, i.e. Dolina in the municipality of Klana, where the shelter will be built.

In the second phase, after the location was defined, the County Institute elaborated the spatial plan for the municipality of Klana, in which it included the area and the conditions for the construction of the "Animal welfare centre" securing the spatial – planning pre-conditions for the realisation of the enterprise. It enabled the start of the preparatory stages for the building of the shelter.
