Shock plan for urban commerce

The municipality of Sant Feliu de Llobregat will begin, soon, the underground train tracks. After many years of demands, a large scale work will be carried out that, in the long run, will bring a lot of benefits to the city.

Therefore, an urban barrier and a psychological border will be eliminated that, historically, has hindered both fluid mobility of pedestrians and vehicles. The result will be translated into new public spaces and the creation of a new urban axis.

Before that, the City Council of Sant Feliu will prepare a shock plan for the trade sector in order to minimize the impact that the project of burial of the railway tracks will have on the immediate commercial fabric.

The shock plan will therefore contemplate a series of measures designed to appease the different direct affections that may exist in commercial establishments and service companies in the area.

To carry out the shock plan an analytical work of the affected area is contemplated with an exhaustive fieldwork to observe and quantify the businesses that will be directly affected. Therefore, an initial photograph of the state of the trade will be available so that it will be possible to update on a regular basis in order to evaluate the impact of the works.

In addition, an analysis of the commercial fabric will be carried out in the affected section and a similar prospective prospection will be carried out in other municipalities that have undergone a similar situation.

Finally, on the basis of the analysis, a plan will be developed with the aim of minimizing the impact of the works and favoring that the commerce and the service companies of the zone can continue with their activity with the maximum normality possible.

Shock plan for urban commerce

Several councils have entrusted us with participation in carrying out a shock plan for the trade sector. As a result of the crisis caused by COVID-19, they have automatically launched the design of a shock plan that, in a consensus with the sector, responds in the short and medium term.

The challenge is very big and time is an important element to consider. For this reason, a work plan has been proposed to be carried out in a short time so that both the city council and the trade sector have the tools to face an effective stage of reconstruction.

Methodological aspects

A series of telematic work sessions (emergency tables) will be held in order to explore ideas together with the sector. In this sense, a mediation role will be carried out between the council and agents in the sector.

The resulting products include the following:

Decalogue of good practices. A report will be drawn up which will include ten basic rules or precepts that must be taken into account in order for everything to return to normal.

Shock plan. It is a document that shows clear guidelines in order to minimize the economic impact of COVID-19 on the commercial fabric of the municipality.

To this end, it contemplates 3 types of actions.

a) Urgent, that is, immediate
b) Priorities, ie in the very short term
c) Important, ie in the medium term

However, given that we are facing a very dynamic phenomenon, it is contemplated to carry out a contingency plan in order to anticipate different scenarios within the shock plan.

Therefore, the result of the shock plan will be a specific project duly sequenced that will establish the different actions to be carried out, their prioritization and proposal of indicators to be considered
