Are you thinking about the future of Hendrik Edo Ambacht?

Hendrick Edu Craft – What will Hendrik Ido Ambacht look like in the future? How do we organize our living environment, the space around us? How do we deal with sometimes conflicting interests? The answers to these questions come in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht’s ecological vision, the strategic vision of the physical environment of life.

Starting Friday, February 5th, the municipality will be happy to discuss this during Environmental Vision Week With residents, social organizations and partners. Other engagement moments will follow in April and May. In December, the city council adopts an environmental vision.

“Our space is limited and therefore of great value.”
Ralph LaFleur, Local Council Member for Sustainability, Spatial Planning, Mobility and Living: “It is a pleasure to live in our municipality, and we would like to keep it that way. It is important to agree on how we want to deal with our living environment. Your presence in the municipality is limited and therefore valuable. I warmly invite you to think about the future of Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht during Environmental Vision Week. Your opinion is very important to us!
