Beleidsanalytische voorstudie voor het project VILT-HW

by Odette van de Riet, M. Briefjes

In preparation for its Fifth Strategy of Spatial Planning the Dutch Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment has identified four areas in the Randstad for studies on regional development. The results of these studies will provide input into the Strategy. One of these areas is the Hoeksche Waard in the province of South Holland. In order to conduct a study of regional developments the province of South Holland has started the project “Verkenning van de Inrichting op de Lange Termijn in de Hoeksche Waard” [Exploration of the Long Term Planning of the Hoeksche Waard](VILT-HW), with a time horizon of 2010-2030. RAND Europe was asked to provide support to the VILT-HW project by conducting a preparatory study which collected information on the spatial demands over the period 2010-2030, in order to highlight gaps in the existing information. The study team conducted expert interviews and a literature analysis to gather information. Results will provide input into the further development of the VILT-HW project.
