Regional news. Plaine Commune celebrates its tenth birthday by launching an ambitious development plan.

Plaine Commune, the second-largest agglomeration community in Paris Region, is celebrating its tenth birthday by launching an ambitious development plan. The eight towns belonging to the intercommunal structure – Aubervilliers, Epinay-sur-Seine, La Courneuve, L’Ile-Saint-Denis, Pierrefitte-sur-Seine, Saint-Denis, Stains and Villetaneuse – recently approved a five-year investment plan (2010-2015) as part of the sustainable development plan approved in 2007 (the ‘Plan d’Aménagement et de Développement Durable’, abbreviated as PADD). One of the flagship projects covers public planning schemes, including urban and residential development projects like the Ecoquartier (eco-neighbourhood) on Ile-Saint-Denis in the Seine river, the ZAC-Canal (Canal business park) in Aubervilliers and Campus Condorcet (see article (in french only)
