Samenvatting

The Netherlands is well-known for its urban density and extensive knowledge of climate adaptation measures. Old neighbourhoods are being restructured and Marsaki is one of the leading firms that develops sustainable solutions. A specific neighbourhood in Goes-Oost, called the Verzetsheldenbuurt, is going to be restructured due to outdated housing and infrastructure. In addition to the normal procedure, Marsaki would like to explore the possibilities of the neighbourhood becoming as ecologically sustainable as possible. To examine these possibilities a holistic and integrated approach has been used and the main question for this study is therefore: What are the possibilities to make the neighbourhood in Goes-Oost self-sufficient by looking at the spatial, environmental, climate, social and financial aspects?
Data for this study were collected with the help of desk research, where the terms self-sufficiency and eco-neighbourhood were defined. As a second research method, three eco-neighbourhood case studies were thoroughly analysed: The existing neighbourhoods Eva-Lanxmeer in Culemborg and Hof van Heden in Hoogvliet, and a future neighbourhood: the Olmentuin in Steenbergen. Research to case studies was enforced by doing interviews with relevant stakeholders. These methods revealed the most important themes to create an eco-neighbourhood: water, energy, urbanism, environment, participation, process and finance. To successfully analyse the project area, an area-analysis has been conducted that includes a layer-analysis, stakeholder analysis and SWOT-analysis.
An eco-neighbourhood catalogue was developed as result from the defined methods including the most important options per defined theme. The results show that complete self-sufficiency is not suitable and the goal is to become as ecologically, sustainable as possible. The themes all have specific building blocks and together form an integrated process.
The Verzetsheldenbuurt identifies itself as the centre for education (primary and secondary schools for various religions and levels) and health care. To maintain the spatial qualities of the neighbourhood, these qualities have been included in the vision. This study has proven that complete self-sufficiency requires a wide project area and extensive social interest and most likely diminishes comfort of inhabitants in an urban area. By integrating high social cohesion and participation, additional costs can be avoided by cooperating in the neighbourhood collectively. A foundation can be set up to manage the maintenance and cooperation within the Verzetsheldenbuurt. The goal is to develop a neighbourhood that breaths air and quality to the living environment while also breathing the atmosphere of an urban neighbourhood. Sustainable living in the Verzetsheldenbuurt is the key principle, enjoying the vivid city centre or surrounding natural areas while having cultural, social and medical facilities at your disposal. The vision for the Verzetsheldenbuurt has been visualised by three different spatial concepts, that all use the same tools as defined in the vision. To select the best option, all criteria were applied to the spatial concepts and should stay as economic feasible and realistic as possible. Scenario 3 has proven itself to be the most suitable option, where the best combination of social cohesion, realism and self-sufficiency is achieved.
