Législation et maîtrise de l'espace urbain: l'expérience néerlandaise

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In the most urbanized areas of the Netherlands, the lack of space and the sharp competition between the various users have incited the public Authorities to set up a very sophisticated set of laws and regulations. The present trend aims at favouring a concentrated urbanization (without however opposing the natural liking of the inhabitants for individual homes) and at curbing the depopulation of town centres. But it proves of little efficiency when attempting at reducing the effects of the social segregation, especially on account of the important prerogatives of townships (for instance concerning the control of the land market) and of their divergent policies with regard to the problems arising from a new settlement of the population within the urbanized areas.
