Arnhem-Nijmegen Spatial Planning

The cities of Arnhem and Nijmegen are rapidly expanding. Arnhem is going south over the river Rhine as Nijmegen is going north over the river Waal. To prevent the cities from growing into each other plans were made for a huge park as a green buffer. This became Park Lingezegen. In 2008 the politicians agreed on the plans and the financing and the masterplan was presented.  As the climate is changing the plan includes water retention techniques to cope with increased rainfall. Also the park has a vital role in linking the dutch natural parks with the parks in germany to enable migration of animals. Park Lingezegen will be developed for local communities to use and enjoy. The park will be an example multifunctional use of open space.

Recently local communities and experts of the Wageningen University have joined forces to identify other ways in which Park Lingezegen could help tackle local and regional climate change challenges through both mitigation and adaptation measures. A report will be published towards the end of 2011 which will ensure Park Lingezegen has an even bigger role to play in combatting the negative effects of climate change in the region.
