Since 2009, OMGEVING has served as border manager for the coordination of the cross-border strategic project ALBERTKNOOP. The municipalities of Lanaken and Maastricht and both provinces of Limburg (BE / NL) are at the helm of this complex area development, in which all parties try to eliminate ‘border barriers’.
By the approval of a ‘Decision’, the Benelux established a joint testing framework for noise regulations for this cross-border business park. This testing framework creates an equal playing field for entrepreneurs and at the same time guarantees the liveability of surrounding residential areas. It serves as a model project of cross-border and inter-territorial cooperation, which can be deployed in other border regions.
