Project description

The study for the creation of a regional spatial plan for the development of horticulture with ecological afforestation and protection of open space around Sint-Katelijne-Waver its origins in the process of defining the agricultural and natural structure with the difficult search for a balance between development opportunities for greenhouses and the protection of open space and development opportunities for ecological forest expansion on the other hand in the region Sint-Katelijne-Waver. Therefore, a separate area-process started to get a clear view of the region on the development perspectives for the various actors and functions in the open space (greenhouses, ecological afforestation, land-based agriculture). The aim of the study is aimed at providing sufficient information in relation to the possible drafting of a regional spatial plan for the region.
