The new neighbourhood called Ribnik SB II is located next to the roundabout as one is entering Ajdovščina from the east. It certainly enriches this particular area of Ajdovščina that is slowly taking on the features of a town quarter. Set in its immediate proximity are a shopping centre, the administrative unit, a retirement home, recreational facilities, a daycare facility and the new Šturje primary school. The day-care facility and school appeal especially to young families.
The municipal detailed management plan (OOPN Ribnik SB II) from 2017 envisages the construction of nine multi- dwelling buildings on an area of 3.4 ha, of which 14,600 m2 are intended for construction. The green setting with the appurtenant infrastructure and facilities is supposed to house a total of 273 dwellings accommodating 811 people.

Spatial Planning Description
The areas to be developed are supposed to be built up with multi-dwelling buildings. Parking areas are provided inside the facility, i.e. in the basement. A basement is also envisaged to extend beyond the ground floor surface area of the residential building in order to get the necessary number of parking spaces for residents. Outside areas feature parking spaces for visitors only. Access to the parking floor should correspond to the terrain and feature no steep inclines.
Intended for the construction of this residential neighbourhood for a while now, the site borders to a day-care facility to the NE, to the residential blocks Ribnik and Kresnice and the Retirement home to the NW, and to the SW to Vipavska cesta, i.e. the regional road Vipava–Ajdovščina, and finally to the SE to green areas extending to the village of Žapuže.
In the immediate vicinity of the new town quarter are: a shopping centre, the city’s administrative unit, a Retirement home, a primary school, a day-care facility and recreational facilities. The day-care facility and school appeal especially to young families.
In terms of traffic, the neighbourhood connects to the bypass and to the express way access which guarantees an easy and fast journey to the nearby towns and cities.
The population in the Municipality of Ajdovščina is on the rise. The improvement in the economic situation is noticeable. There has been progress with regard to employment rates and new job openings. The real estate market is increasingly lively. Apartment rental ads put up online stay up only for a few hours, and apartment purchase ads are snatched up in a matter of days. There is an increasing housing demand, especially by young families. Figures indicate the growing demand for sheltered housing designed for the ageing population within the municipality, providing care and assistance to meet the needs of seniors. The municipality wishes to realize the planned construction of Ribnik SB II, and provide opportunities and attract investors to build multi-dwelling buildings.
