SVP national councillor Andreas Glarner says: "The unrestricted immigration of around 60'000 people in the year net, the Overbuilding of an area of about 3,000 football fields to the result."
The construction of the Swiss landscape is stopped only by an immigration stop: To Andreas Glarner ( SVP , AG) commented this week, as the national Council on the spatial planning debated law. However, the right of Glarus information given – that the "unrestricted immigration" of a year 60'000 people smoke in the area of 3,000 football fields with?
First of all, the Numbers: The settlement area has increased, according to information from the Federal government in the last evaluated period 2340 hectares per year. This corresponds to the fact 3277 football fields of the standard mass 7140 square meters. The size of 3000 football fields, is thus correct.
Only a part of this immigration was made "freely", i.e. covered by the free movement of persons with the EU.
the problem is the statement of an "unrestricted immigration" of a year, 60000 people, however. For the year 2018, the statistic shows a migrants plus 54763 persons, in 2017, it was still a little less. Prior to that, there were, in fact, a long Phase with higher Immigration. It is crucial, however, that only a part of this immigration "was carried out without hindrance", so covered by the free movement of persons with the EU. The latter was nominal in the year 2018 for about 30000 additional inhabitant responsible for slightly more than half.
simply put: The need to several tens of thousands of people who immigrate to live somewhere.
the complex Interplay of Immigration, and area consumption. Undoubtedly, immigration is a more important, after the adoption of the experts, the most important driver of settlement growth. Simplified said: The tens of thousands of people who immigrate, have to live somewhere.
of Course, to be expected in addition to residential houses, commercial buildings, and roads to the settlement areas, as well gardens and Parks. A part of the "built-in" area is actually green as a football field. And, unlike private residential roads and Park areas are usable for all, not just for Immigrants, but also long-Established. Glarners statement is about in terms of content, although not totally of the mark. In such a verknapptem the context of his Numbers, however, are not durable.
