The integration of alternative mobility services (sharing, carpooling, delivery services) into residential construction makes an important contribution to the sustainability transition in the mobility sector. However, the current legal link between the areas of mobility and housing is primarily aimed at the provision of car parking spaces in the residential environment. There is currently a lack of a clear public law framework for the implementation of sharing offers and other mobility services for residents. The current parking space obligations, which vary greatly from state to state, represent a starting point on the one hand, but can also be an obstacle on the other. The aim of the project is to analyse the current legal framework in a structured manner, distinguishing between the different types of property developers (non-profit and commercial) as well as new construction projects and refurbishments. By reviewing and analysing best-practice examples of the implementation of alternative mobility concepts in residential construction, the main legal challenges are to be worked out and the need for action identified. In addition, the legal approaches and implementation practices in other selected countries will be analysed and evaluated in a comparative legal analysis. Finally, a practice-orientated guideline as well as options and recommendations for action will be developed, which can be used as a basis for adapting or redesigning the relevant legal framework.
