The aim of this first phase was to identify the groups of stakeholders in the area and analyse and specify the problems, and to organise an urban walk. This was done after a discussion between the municipality and the developer of the project for a national centre of canoeing and rowing in the area of Zemník. As author of the general city master plan, the municipality is responsible for awarding the building permissions.
Several meetings and consultations took place involving members of the city’s Urban Planning department (Ing. arch. Karin Lexmann, Ing. arch. Beata Arvayova, Ing. arch. Lubica Fenclova, Mag. rer. nat. Marek Dinka) with the purpose of analysing the problems in the area and setting up the targets of the participatory action in agreement with the general master plan of city of Bratislava (Figure 1).
