The Representative Body of Hévíz approved the Integrated Urban Development Strategy which entered into force on 1st April 2018.

Changes in the city life necessitated the development of a new integrated urban development strategy relying on various research activities for the period of 2017 and 2023 to increase the demographic as well as the social, economic, and environmental impacts of urban development projects. The strategy appoints action areas assisting the integration of projects. Thanks to these action areas the city is supposed to realize its middle and long-term aims.

The long-term aim is to be among the ten best-known and most popular bathing resorts in Europe by 2030 which consists of providing high quality and exclusive services in Hévíz. In order to reach this goal, three mid-term strategic plans are evolved such as follows:

  • Strengthening of spa tourism,
    • Formation of a green city which helps to protect the lake (climate protection, energy efficient solutions, environment sustainability),
    • Development of the quality and quantity of public services to make Hévíz an attractive city.
