“Currently, together with other municipalities, we are trying to prevent the construction of a logistics-production site on the outskirts of the city due to the extreme load on parts of the city by truck transport,” said Jiří Svoboda, Mayor of České Budějovice. The CTP Group is preparing a project in the northern part of České Budějovice near the motorway exit. The state is close to the existing Makro store. A bypass of the city is currently being built in the South Bohemian metropolis, which will be part of the D3 motorway towards Austria. 

It will not be easy for the builders of the halls or the D35 motorway. Its construction is currently taking place in Eastern Bohemia. The traffic artery should also lead around Litomyšl. "We certainly do not want the logistics halls around our city and it was one of the main arguments why we did not want a direct exit to the city in the direction from Česká Třebová," said Mayor of Litomyšl Daniel Brýdl. The project to build the largest warehouse in the Czech Republic also has problems. The developer CTP is preparing it for the German Daimler in Úžice u Prahy, within sight of the D8 motorway. However, the municipality does not like the project for a giant hall for car spare parts for the whole world. 

“The project in question is so extensive that its potential negative impacts can affect the environment of the city of Odolena Voda. The territory of our cadastre is affected by above-limit emissions of fine airborne dust and excessive noise, ”said Hana Plecitá, Mayor of Odolena Voda. She pointed out that it was the position of the whole town hall management. A number of town halls near the D8 motorway near the metropolis have therefore given the Ministry of Environment an incentive to review the environmental impact assessment. In addition, local governments have joined Corridor D8, which aims to reduce large-scale industrial construction around this part of the motorway. Developers, instead of conflicts with town halls and residents in the construction of "green meadows", have recently chosen new construction on the site of dilapidated industrial sites.

“Given the almost non-functional building law and the current attitude of municipalities to greenfield construction, the recent acquisition of brownfields is a major trend among developers. By using brownfields, developers prevent greater resistance from local residents and often lengthy licensing procedures. We expect this trend to continue in the future. We believe this is the right direction for the expansion of developer activities across all industries, ”said David Vais, Industrial Property Manager at JLL. For example, real estate companies Panattoni or Accolade are building and preparing projects for brownfields. In Prague, the largest builder, Central Group, also bets on brownfields.
