Urban development management: Past, present and future

  • In the past three decades, ‘Area Development’ (gebiedsontwikkeling) has emerged as a distinct category in Dutch spatial policy and practice, combining language and concepts from urban planning and design, property development, and related professions. Its emergence runs parallel to similar integrative, area-based planning and development efforts that have been observed throughout North-Western European practices since the 1990s.
  • With such an increased role for private actors in cities come concerns about safeguarding public interests and (re)developing urban areas in a sustainable manner.
