People need space to live in, work in and enjoy leisure time. The challenge of spatial planning is to create sustainable areas for these purposes though the space is limited and the people concerned have different interests.

Spatial planning

People need space to live in, work in and enjoy leisure time. The challenge of spatial planning is to create sustainable areas for these purposes though the space is limited and the people concerned have different interests. The blue lines and areas on the map can help solve this puzzle. Water is everywhere. If we do not give water enough space it will take that space by force. Schieland en de Krimpenerwaard plays an advisory role in spatial planning and is involved in project development from the very beginning. In order to incorporate water in new neighbourhoods and recreational areas in the best way, it puts considerable time and energy into public and stakeholder participation. But there is more: Schieland en de Krimpenerwaard also helps decide the best spot for new neighbourhoods. Thus problems can be anticipated and prevented and everyone will profit from that. People can live and enjoy life safely, despite the fact that most of the area lies below sea level.

Schieland en de Krimpenerwaard never sleeps and works hard to ensure that we keep our feet dry, and also provide sufficient and clean surface water in its catchment area.
