By launching the website a few days ago, the City of Tours hopes to communicate more extensively about its local urban development plan and development projects. The municipality is also launching a call for innovative urban proposals for 8 of the City's landmark sites. It is vowing to place users at the heart of the City's renewal. Closing date for submissions: 30 March 2019.

Associations, businesses, individuals with ideas... Everyone is welcome to join or form a team with professionals to submit a bid for this call for proposals, which is aimed at fostering the emergence (and delivery) of innovative projects that renew the products and methods of the real estate sector.  

Expected areas of innovation:

  • Involvement of civil society stakeholders

The 8 landmark sites:  

  • Saint-Sauveur
  • Pavillon de Condé
  • Col hangar
  • L’Ermitage (within the borders of the Loire Valley site listed as a World Heritage)

All of the proposals will have to follow the broad outlines defined in the Spatial Planning and Sustainable Development Plan (PADD) and urban planning rules of the Local Urban Development Plan (PLU).
