City of Bruges
Dense city and (sub)urban residential area
The ‘Kerkebeek’ is a local stream in Bruges, which is sensitive to flooding when heavy rainfall occurs. Currently, this green corridor is more a ‘grey’ corridor, but it offers many opportunities for increased climate resilience that are not yet exploited.
The City of Bruges will replace 1000m² of impermeable pavement with green solutions. Among these solutions are plans to open up the local stream and create a park.
First results are expected in 2021.
