In addition to the internal administrative unit (management support, controlling and personnel matters), the Green Business Unit is divided into three major areas: Area Responsibility and Cemetery Management, Green and Open Space Planning, and Green Space Maintenance and Cemeteries.

The city's Green Division is not located in the city hall, but in a branch office in Dieselstraße or directly at the municipal forest cemetery (cemetery administration) in Werderstraße.

  • Space Management and Internal Service

    Given the large number of areas and objects for which the department is responsible and which it provides as a service provider for other business areas (youth, school, property and building management, among others) and third party owners (WEB, hospital, among others), legal obligations (obligation to ensure road safety, obligations of owners under neighboring law, among others) necessitate the establishment of an "area management" staff unit. This is assigned directly to the head of the business unit. It thus relieves the head of the business unit by providing expert knowledge and acting in an advisory capacity.

    The staff unit is thus assigned both management tasks that lie within the original area of responsibility of the head of the business unit (e.g., ensuring traffic safety in play areas, statutes and fees for the burial service) and tasks with a business unit-wide impact (e.g., quality and complaints management, customer support, and provision of management and operational control information from the green space information system). It acts as the manager of the public green spaces and provides the link between internal and external customers and the green space maintenance operation.

  • Green and open space planning

    Department 08-2 is concerned with the planning and construction of green spaces and playgrounds, both in public green spaces and for internal and external customers. This includes inner-city projects of national importance as well as outdoor school facilities, day care centers, public playgrounds and other outdoor facilities.

    Furthermore, within the framework of landscape and green space planning, landscape management plans are drawn up and implemented for A-E areas, these are coordinated with the project developers, the A-E cadastre is maintained and land and land consumption are managed.

  • Green Space Management
