The Metropolitan Territorial Plan of Barcelona (PTMB, 2010) presents Granollers as an urban area with strong structural relation with Barcelona, in terms of labour market, public facilities, services and nodes of transport network. Granollers has already started working towards climate neutrality through its commitment to the Covenant of Mayors. The city is also developing Low Emission Zones, Safe and Healthy School Environments and other actions that facilitate traffic calming and the recovery of the pedestrian public spaces. The Strategic Plan of Granollers by 2030 (2022) develops the criteria to transform the area around Granollers Centre railway station into a liveable neighbourhood, resilient to climate change. The planned new metropolitan development around the railway station, will integrate tertiary uses with public facilities and open spaces and a new mobility system.

To be achieved through UP2030

Granollers will focus its interventions in sector 129-La Bòbila around the Rail Station towards creating a low carbon district by identifying the right balance between Grey and Blue/Green infrastructure while maintaining inclusivity and equity - i.e. not drive gentrification. Specific activities to be implemented include: 

  • Creation of a citizen laboratory focused on the urban transformation of the city.
  • Definition of the policy recommendations to achieve a climate-neutral, liveable and resilient neighbourhood in La Bòbila sector.
  • Application of cross cutting, climate mitigation-adaptation and spatial justice tools to assess the future planning of La Bòbila sector and the creation of a public node for the modal interchange.
  • Development of other climate-neutral areas in the city by 2030.
  • Connection proposal of the urban green grid with the system of open spaces of the municipality, through the green infrastructure of La Bòbila sector.
