Red-red-green Senate : armed to Berlin's housing is sharper

The political dispute over the construction of municipal flats is exacerbated. The Berlin SPD posted on Thursday on Twitter: "it remains Our goal to build with the state-owned housing companies 30,000 in rental housing." Also, the governing mayor Michael Müller (SPD), holds firmly to this line.

Senate spokeswoman Claudia sinners confirmed: "I know of no decision of the coalition is known, according to the coalition agreement, different Change was made". Müller against urban development Senator Katrin Lompscher (Left).

The opinion of the Senate Chancellery following a debate on the housing targets in the red-red-green coalition, the daily mirror research from the previous day had triggered. On a "Jour Fixe" had declared the six state-owned companies, even the downwardly revised housing targets for the unattainable, the Senator Lompscher, who had announced a week earlier: according to The companies, it will not be possible once to create 25,000 of municipal dwellings by the year 2021, but about 1000 less.

FDP announces disapproval of the request

The CDU parliamentary group, announced on Thursday, in the house of representatives a disapproval resolution against the Senator. The occasion of this is your step-by-step to Move away from the own goal. Lompschers administration does not want to accept the new limit of 24 013 apartments – the ruling now wants to move away but again not in the times of the originally agreed-upon coalition objectives.

in order for the pressure to Lompscher increased massively: you must not only survive a disapproval resolution in the house of representatives, but the Senate retreat in the coming week. What is crucial is the attitude of the Greens is likely to be in the question. The SPD alone in the face of poor polls is unlikely to be able, alone, enough to build up pressure.

The Opposition not only looks Lompscher, but the whole of the Senate in the debt. "The Senator for city development is not grown in office, and is apparently guided by advisers who think you can stop with the prevention of the new building, an increase in the population and economic growth," said Christian Gräff, responsible for Building and Living in the CDU.

Lompscher self would have made of housing with regulations such as those for attic conversions more complicated and "a climate in which less intended to be built created". The decline in new construction numbers, the public companies referred to Gräff as "not acceptable".

But also asked the governing mayor. To annoy "instead, at every opportunity publicly about the failure of Lompschers, he would've been fired long ago," said Gräff. The Senate have exacerbated "the rent crisis only" and was "a clog on the leg of our growing city".

Lompscher are unimpressed

FDP-Faction leader, Sebastian Czaja, Müller requested to immediately contact a housing summit to convene and said: "it is Only together that municipal housing companies, cooperatives, and investors, as well as districts, the Senate and the Opposition can find a solution that helps our city in a sustainable way."

The CDU application against Lompscher he called "an audience in an effective but constitutionally non-binding occupational therapy for the CDU." The Problem Lompscher, was thought "too easy," says Czaja. On the formal consequences of loose disapproval Lompschers the members on the 21. February vote.

Lompscher gave himself, as in the past, unimpressed. Via Twitter, the Senate common administration for urban development, the aim of 194.000 new homes by 2030, it'll hold. The needs have not changed, therefore, there is no reason to reduce this target, a spokeswoman.

Like many flats in 2018 were built and how big is the difference to the targeted average of 20,000 flats will be in the year, but probably only in mid-may. Then the new figures are released officially in 2017, the value was 16,000 apartments.

"are small gardens are an important part of this town"

Also among the small gardeners of the city the issue of new housing construction creates even more excitement. The occasion of a proposal from the ranks of the Berlin chamber of construction, is representative of the construction operating engineers. Thus could be created through the development of around one-fifth of the nearly 3000 small gardens used hectare of land up to 200,000 homes.

the prerequisite for this is that the apartments should not be larger than 46 square meters. After Günter Landgraf, President of the national Association of the garden friends, had discarded the need for such plans, said Katalin Gennburg for the Left group in the house of representatives: "an important part of this city of gardens. The proposal to cultivate small gardens, is completely out of place. We can't afford a city without gardens.“
