A new national law (‘Omgevingswet’) turning effective in 2017 will require national government, provinces and municipalities to set up integral spatial plans in a long-term vision document: the ‘Omgevingsvisie’. This new, complex type of plans will replace a large number of the current vision and planning documents, such as structural plans, nature protection plans, infrastructure plans etcetera.
The Province of Fryslân organizes an Atelier Omgevingsvisie Fryslân in order to explore and prepare the provincial Omgevingsvisie. The Atelier, mentored by Eric Frijters (FABRIC), Sandra van Assen (Sandra van Assen Stedenbouw) and Architectuur Lokaal, has made a selection of eight young architects, urbanists and landscape architects. Together with experts and stakeholders, the Atelier will investigate the spatial future of the province, setting up pop-up sessions at several locations throughout the province. On the 10th of May was the start of the series with a meeting at the Provinciehuis and a first excursion.
Everyone interested is invited to join. For more background information, the Atelier’s agenda and contact data, please visit the website of Atelier Omgevingsvisie Fryslân.
