Approach Agniesenbuurt

With the Approach Outdoor space Agniesebuurt we are working on a neighborhood where it is pleasant to live, work and stay in both now and in the future. Where the sewerage system and the groundwater and rainwater management system function properly and the public space (above and underground) and private space are well laid out. In a way that fits the needs of local residents and users and that limits the nuisance of the consequences of climate change.

The residents of the Agniesebuurt have discussed a plan for the outdoor space of the Agniesebuurt together with the Havensteder housing corporation, the municipality of Rotterdam and the Schieland and Krimpenerwaard water board. We do this together, so that all interests can be properly taken into account in the plans.
