Joining forces is moving forward. Springco Urban Analytics, Fakton Consultancy, KCAP Architects&Planners and Dietz communicatie have collaborated in the recent months for and with ‘Werkplaats Overvecht’ and local stakeholders (residents and institutions) to create a start product for Overvecht area in Utrecht. Based on an area profile and development vision for the entire district as a first step, eight neighborhood profiles have been drawn up. They map out the current social tasks and the spatial and programmatic challenges for each of them. With this well-founded spatial underpinning for the neighborhoods’ future, dialogue with residents, public and private parties can be launched to start initiating projects for neighborhood improvement. A good result that will be elaborated and enriched in the coming months in the so-called ‘Omgevingsprogramma Overvecht’ that the municipality of Utrecht is drawing up. Interested to know more?
