The landscape between the city Groningen and Hoogezand-Sappemeer is a dynamic area, where several developments and ambitions come together. Meerstad is expanding in the direction of the highway, there is a wish for a recreational water route for boats between the Zuidlaardermeer and the Woldmeer and an ambition for more economic development along the A7 highway. These dynamics will be brought together in a coherent integral spatial vision for the area. The vision will combine a spatial economic perspective that focusses on the A7 corridor, in relationship to possibilities for landscape developments. BURA joins the team of Strootman Landschapsarchitecten to develop this vision in collaboration with Stec groep and InVra-plus.
