The town of Český Krumlov plans to create a new local town centre that will offer its citizens services and functions appropriate to the developing town of today. A centre that will provide a meaningful range of services and usable spaces, that the historic core is unable to offer. The city wants to accommodate the functions that the historic downtown development very difficult to provide (due to limited transport accessibility, the size of the interior spaces of the buildings, the small size of the roads, the complicated morphology of the site...) and to encourage the development of the peripheral parts of the centre, which can better respond to the dynamic development of society and its needs, also in terms of social events and everyday encounters.
