A few months ago, the town hall started working on a project to revitalize the housing estate, which is bordered by Malkovského, Křivoklátská and Ivančická streets. The project includes the complete regeneration of land between houses, the creation of leisure areas and solving the lack of parking. The expected investment in the renovation of the housing estate is estimated at 50 – 100 million crowns, which must be applied for by the municipality this year. If the investment is approved, work will be able to begin in 2012-2013. However, in addition to funding the action, there are other areas that need to be addressed before the project can begin.
A clear condition for starting the project is the solution of the land. Regeneration of the housing estate is not possible without cooperation with CPI and individual SVJ. Negotiations with the CPI have been ongoing since the autumn of last year, and the final version of the agreement on the transfer or long-term lease of land affected by the new housing estate project is currently being finalized.
The situation of land that is adjacent to houses is much more complicated, and their ownership is different. This applies to approximately 50 SVJ, half of which own land around the house. Of course, the housing development project will also affect these plots, which is why the town hall will offer individual SVJs the option of long-term lease of plots so that the project can be implemented. If SVJ leases its land, the city district will regenerate the land and then take care of it. However, it is not possible to maintain land only for selected houses. Therefore, it is necessary to address the issue of land transfer comprehensively and uniformly. This is not yet successful, as individual SVJs have different views on the ownership of these lands. Of course, the town hall cannot persuade SVJ to buy land. However, their representatives must realize that until there is agreement between the SVJ and the CPI on the land near the house, the houses will never be revitalized and there will never be playgrounds or new parking spaces in the courtyards.
Slow home revitalization
Many houses are currently being renovated, the windows are being changed, the house is being insulated and new lifts are being installed. The result of very high quality work can be seen, for example, in Nýdecká 444, Malkovského 596-8 and other houses. The committees of these SVJs deserve praise. However, the reconstruction of houses must precede the project of a new housing estate. It is not possible to regenerate the surrounding land and then build a construction site on it.
Many SVJs are still under the administration of the CPI, despite the fact that company representatives are appealing to the residents of the individual entrances to set up their own SVJ committee and start taking care of their own house. The former AVIA housing estate has a total of 74 entrances and 15 of them still do not have a committee of its own inhabitants.
Residents of prefabricated houses should press their SVJ committees to begin reconstruction work to provide them with new elevators or insulation. Finished houses in Malkovského and Nýdecká are clear proof that it works. Just want to.
SVJ to buy land. However, their representatives must realize that until there is agreement between the SVJ and the CPI on the land near the house, the houses will never be revitalized and there will never be playgrounds or new parking spaces in the courtyards.
Project of a new housing estate
Atelier MIO Architects designed a new housing estate, which prioritizes leisure activities over roads and parking. Traffic is limited only to Krausova and the surrounding streets, and inside the housing estate there are so-called lentils, which represent various active or recreational areas. Today’s roads create unnecessary barriers in various places in the housing estate, and therefore this concept eliminates some asphalt roads and combines green areas into one large one, where elements for sports and relaxation will be created. Parking is solved along the surrounding streets and in various variants 140-180 parking spaces will be added.
