Department of Spatial Planning and Quality of the Local Environment

This department focuses on spatial planning and the quality of the local environment within the Netherlands, especially considering area-specific policies. It pays particular attention to the connection between spatial developments and to their effects on various aspects of our environment. This concerns issues such as perception of environment, and the health and safety of its residents, social cohesion and economic vitality within neighbourhoods, energy efficiency within the built environment, and accessibility of nature and landscape. In addition, this department studies particularly provincial and government policies on integrated spatial development.
