The municipality of Duffel is currently developing the “Open Ruimte Duffel-East” spatial implementation plan. The goal is to better protect the open space in Duffel-East and Duffel-Mijlstraat, while offering sufficient development prospects for existing family farms.
The spatial implementation plan establishes zoning and planning regulations for a given area. It forms the basis for evaluating environmental permits and thus whether or not they should be issued.
The preparation of the initiation note and process was the first step. The municipality is now presenting this document to residents during the period of public consultation. It runs until May 12th. The municipality also organizes two moments of participation in the City Hall: on Tuesday 29 March from 9 am to 12:30 pm and on Thursday 21 April from 4:30 pm until 7:30 pm.
“When developing the ‘Open Ruimte Duffel-East’ spatial implementation plan, our focus is on a balanced blend of agriculture, nature and recreation,” says Alderman to Spatial Planning Isabel Glorie (N-VA).
You can view the documents on the municipality’s website or at the town hall environment counter by making an appointment. (cvr)
