Over the next few weeks, the Berlin water company will be drilling exploratory holes for the proposed overflow sewer along the section of Schwedter Straße that is in the Mauerpark. The purpose is to investigate the groundwater level, check for any possible contamination and find out whether there are any undocumented pipelines or anything else that might obstruct future work.

The park will be accessible at all times (including for cyclists) and work will not be carried out at weekends. The exploratory work is due to be completed by mid-July 2015. The actual work on the overflow sewer – which will be a major engineering project – is scheduled to begin in 2017, according to Berliner Wasserbetriebe, the city’s water company.

Freunde des Mauerparks are working to ensure a continuing dialogue between park users and residents during both the planning phase and the engineering works.

Your Mauerpark needs you! Make your voice heard!

Sunday, 1. March 2015 um 09:00

The Mauerpark is a place for people from all over the world,
but building tycoons just see it as prime land for development. 

Developers are planning to build over 700 apartments at the northern part of the Mauerpark.  The Freunde des Mauerparks e.V. are resolutely against developing the area to the north of the Gleimstrasse tunnel in the way proposed. We have only a few weeks to halt these development plans.

The Groth Group’s plans are unacceptable for many reasons:

  • The Mauerpark has become an important and popular place that is used for a diverse range of activities. It needs room to breathe and so do the people who live near it. We must preserve green space that is vital to the quality of life in our neighborhood.
  • Moritzhof city farm is both educational and fun and is much loved by local children and adolescents. The proposed development will completely overshadow the farm and its surrounding area.
  • A roundabout on Gleimstrasse providing access to the new housing would cause further traffic chaos and have a very negative impact on residents.

Please spend 5 minutes to tell the planning authorities that you object!

Register your support for the Mauerpark and write a formal objection to these development plans.  The Borough authorities are obliged to look at each objection.

You can submit your objections online or write them at our information stand. If you don’t speak German, write in your own language but be sure to copy these words as your title:  “Bebauungsplan-1-64a VE – Einwendung
