(Sub)urban residential area
Wemeldinge Noord experiences regular pluvial flooding, due to outdated infrastructure including sewerage and a large amount of paved surfaces. With climate change, these local inundations occur more frequently.
The pilot project aims to use the adaptive power of the area and reduce the pavement with at least 0,6 ha. A robust green corridor through the neighbourhood will function as water storage and thus reduce the flood problems in the area. With an increase of 50% in green space, the green corridor forms an attractive recreational route. The water storage is designed in close cooperation with residents, so that it’s recreational potential fits the local needs.
First results are expected after May 2021, when the implementation phase starts.
