Citydev and Brussels Environment in partnership

Development agency citydev.brussels has announced that it has confirmed its partnership with Brussels Environment. The stated aim is to increase the synergies between urban planning policies and the development of green areas within the Region. The move also forms part of the desire of citydev to work in closer cooperation with various public bodies, in order to provide a coherent response to the challenges facing Brussels. In particular, it wishes to create a harmonious mix between the economic activities required in the city, and the needs of those living in it.

For its part, one of the priorities of Brussels Environment is to create green areas, not just in isolation, but with a link between them, forming a sort of ‘green web’ across the city.

In concrete terms, the two bodies will share their expertise, their data and their knowledge. Brussels Environment Minister Céline Fremault speaks of more than 50% of the Region’s territory being occupied by green areas, but of it being unevenly spread; The centre has – perhaps inevitably – far les in the way of green areas than the peripheral zones, which makes this ‘web’ all the more important.

A first concrete step in the partnership is the desire to jointly finance the acquisition of the former Léonidas site in Anderlecht. It will be totally redeveloped, with citydev taking care of the housing to be built, and Brussels Environment the green areas.
