Combining safety and spatial planning

Decline in spatial quality

Decline in spatial quality due to a high number of civil constructions.

Along the coast, in particular, it is necessary to improve the spatial quality in the short term, while safety challenges are more long term. The risk then is that investments and interventions in spatial quality will later be reversed and cancelled out when tackling safety objectives.


Adaptive growth concepts

Adaptive growth concepts combine solutions for safety with solutions for spatial quality. By applying this, developments can build on each other, improving the connection in space, time and coöperation.



  • The multipurpose use of water defence constructions will be increased.
  • By solving the various problems at once, desinvestment can be prevented
