NWO-sponsored research program 'Reinventing Landscape Planning in MetroLand'
In the metropolitan landscape, the complexity
and dynamics of societal developments no longer allow the classical role of the government
and its policy instruments to be effective. Dutch spatial planning needs to critically
analyse the driving forces in the metropolitan landscape and why classical spatial
planning is not effective anymore, in order to define new adequate ways of co-ordinating
The application of grounded theory methodology and the installation of a user group facilitate closely connected empirical and theoretical analyses in order to find ways to make landscape planning more effective, with specific reference to the actual value of open space and how this value can be internalised in the Dutch planning system.
The program consists of three research-projects, which are positioned graphically below:
