Study ‘Water in the city’ . Ghent

The team OMGEVING – De Urbanisten – Eco Insight – Hydroscan – Idea Consult has concluded the research project ‘Water in the city’, commissioned by the City of Ghent. Together with the city council, a strategy was developed to increase the presence of water in the city. Starting from a variety of goals, the plan shows an ambitious future image for ten distinct types of “Ghentian blue”.

As of June, the city council is engaging in dialogue with the water manager ‘Waterwegen en Zeekanaal’, kicking off a second phase. The aim is to finalize a supported and common vision document which sets out the chalk lines for the coming years and defines joint actions.
