Lille’s local government has set out a vision for housing policy. Residents can submit comments on the policy plan until August 20.
In February, the municipality, with the spatial planning division of the inter-municipal company IOK, began developing a vision for housing policy. The policy vision proposal is now ready. “The goal of the housing policy vision is to preserve the village-like character of our municipality and combat ‘housing.’” explains Vincent Goossens (N-VA), a local council member for spatial planning in Lille. “So we will make better use of the building space in the cores. The proposal contains a vision of how we see the future of our municipality and identify the most suitable locations for living. In doing so, we take into account the utmost in mobility in our municipality and the quality of housing projects.”
Anyone who reads can see Lille’s policy on the municipality’s website. Comments can be submitted until August 20 this year. All comments will then be submitted to the City Council. (bvdl)
