The project countered the governmental plans in relation to the ski-resort development of the Normafa area of Budapest seriously endangering the natural and cultural values of the area by the means of providing alternative participatory planning possibilities and alternative to the one-sided and non-participatory communication and preparatory work of the local municipality practically excluding civic groups. For this, Normafa Naturally Civic Coalition carried out a community planning process composed of six community sessions in which interested residents and experts had the opportunity to develop an alternative development concept forming working groups that the organizers could submit to the local government together with four expert papers on some of the narrower issues. As part of the planning, a survey was also carried out, with around 4500 people sharing their views on the development ideas. In the course of the implementation, the natural and heritage protection interests were also advocated through personal consultations and joint landscape visits with the local government, while before a district-level referendum on the investment, 10,000 leaflets were distributed to the local households in order to inform the public. It is at least due the success of the project that the municipality has given up some of the most damaging plans and that the process has become more participatory.
