The environmental and landscape project is headed to the study for the definition of the new port asset.
The proposal aims to promote greater functional and spatial integration between the port, the city and the territory, and is thought to create new areas of port development: real environmental filtering devices and connections with the ecologies of the lagoon.
In particular, the feasibility assessment aims to ensure sustainability from the point of view of some functional and environmental requirements, expectations and proposals made by the various institutions involved (the municipality and the ASPO), Covering:
- The relocation of the fish market from the Island of Shipyards to Val da Rio responds to the need to ensure greater efficiency in the sector (new spaces suitable both in terms of dimensional and functional development of the market and mechanisms for distribution and sale contemporary) but also a better integration in the urban and territorial context (in terms of accessibility, reduction of impacts, etc.) meant as a necessary condition to the redevelopment of an area of particular landscape and environmental value.
- The development of the cruise industry. The proposed development of cruise traffic has been promoted for some time by the Special Authority for the Port of Chioggia also through program agreements shared with the Port of Chioggia, and the City Council. It presupposes the reorganization of Isola Saloni, current commercial port, which has been transferred in Val da Rio, is to support the establishment of new tourism-oriented activities such as yachting and cruise traffic, both to realize and services public spaces for the benefit of the old town of Chioggia.
- The reorganization of the port of Val da Rio. The need to better organize the area of Val da Rio, completing interventions under the PRP in force but giving space to new activities foreseen as a result of transfer from other sedi, characterized by timed interventions and initiatives of ASPO. However, it seems essential to place these interventions within an overall framework, articulated in different time horizons and to ensure greater functionality and integration with respect to the territorial and urban context, in terms of accessibility by land and by sea, provision of services for the city and port activities, integration between different activities (construction, commercial ports, etc.), energy efficiency and savings.
