Client: Municipality of Kassandra (former Municipalities of: Kassandra, Pallini)

Area: Settlement of Paliouri, Municipality of Kassandra, Regional Unit of Chalkidiki

Study Category: Surveying (16) – Town Planning (02)

The study concerns the urban planning of the settlement of Paliouri, of the Municipal Unit of Pallini, and in particular of its delimited part by decision of the Prefect of Chalkidiki. The Stage A of the study was delivered in mid-2002, but since then there has been no development of the study, as the Managing Authority considered that the Open City Spatial and Housing Organization Plan should first be completed of the “Kapodistrian” of the Municipality of Pallini, and then to elaborate the Stage B of urban planning. The Open City Spatial and Housing Organization Plan of Pallini was approved with a long delay in May 2012, thus the continuation of the Paliouri urban planning is now possible, but following the relevant initiatives that the Municipality should undertake (eg as regards the appointment of a supervising engineer, etc.).

The urban planning and the proposed city plan should respect the core of the settlement with the configured narrow streets, which they give a special character to the settlement that was founded in 1918,but also to propose new roads, so as to acquire a “face” of many “blind” properties today and to be served  the traffic organization of the settlement, taking also into account the seasonal tourist activity.
