The province of Noord-Brabant last Friday approved a new regional plan that incorporates modern spatial issues. Starting point was the economic use of available space, taking into account soil conditions, water management and existing built-up areas and infrastructure.
The policy regarding living and working, protection of the environment, the agricultural interests and urbanization projects all will get shape in the new regional plan and the individual reconstruction plans. Noticeably the zoning surrounding natural landscapes and housing projects in smaller villages initially met quite some resistance.
