LOCATION: East of Monticelli (45°5'27''24 N 09°56'15''36 E), at an average of 38-42 metres above sea level, plain area with an inclination of 2-5%, infrastructural assets SP10 (provincial road); first aquifer depth at 5 metres from soil level

ACCESSIBILITY AND SERVICES: connection to Castelvetro Piacentino tollgate of A21 TORINO-BRESCIA motorway (1-5 km); nearest logistic centre situated in Piacenza, Le Mose (>10 km)

INFRASTRUCTURAL SERVICES: implementation of a local road network giving access to potential new settlements; current technological networks will have to be developed (in particular the sewerage and purification networks)

CURRENT PLANNING RULES AND REGULATIONS: Municipal structural plan (PSC) approved in 2013

UTILITIES: water, gas, electricity supply networks, drainage system (mixed storm and waste waters), connection to water purification plant

GOALS: a potential expansion in an area next to the craft zone of the main town, aimed at the establishment of new activities mainly with production and manufacture functions; other functions which are likely to be established there are linked with the commercial (in accordance with local plan codes and law indications) and tertiary sector; new equipped areas will have to be implemented in order to host already existing activities currently located in residential areas, with which they often clash, or in overstocked urban areas where they cannot expand due to the current urban building index; existing activities need a plan including their potential physiological expansion, aimed both at their growth in size and at detecting areas offering a more adequate road network; necessity to meet the needs of new production activities, either started up by residents or relocated from nearby municipalities, creating new jobs in innovative sectors with low environmental impact and compatible with local professional needs; production area will be transformed into APEA (Ecologically Equipped Production Area); plants will have to be necessarily adjusted to current technological systems, particularly the sewage and purification plants; the area will help to implement the provincial Ecological Network

INTERVENTIONS OF TRANSFORMATION: the new activities will have to be planned in accordance with territorial, environmental and landscape characteristics. Considering the peculiar morphology and characterization of this functional area, the new settlements will have to be carefully planned after existing buildings and production activities, mainly due to the proximity of the two areas, to local access road network, to current technological networks, and to potential natural and environmental elements of interest, which have to be preserved; soil impermeability will have to be reduced as much as possible; the new activities will have to be settled near proper drainage and purification plants; the use of non-renewable environmental sources will have to be reduced; a green area planted with native trees dividing production and residential areas will have to be enhanced; measures and devices for the prevention and/or reduction of air, sound and light pollution will have to be implemented, encouraging the use of alternative energy sources; proper separation, reuse and drainage of storm and waste waters systems will have to be planned; appropriate waste disposal system; maintenance of woods, green border areas and existing trees, if required; sustainable mobility plan
