The Stedendriehoek Apeldoorn, Deventer, Zutphen is the Cleantech Region. Cleantech is about working together for a clean future. It concerns energy transition, climate adaptation, sustainable mobility, attractive living environments, balanced natural living environments and sustainable economic opportunities. The spatial experience, the landscape, will change as a result. At the same time, the region cherishes the existing spatial qualities, the high biodiversity and the unique experience of landscape, heritage, villages and cities. The widening of the A1, over the next 10 years, is seen as an opportunity to accelerate and coherently realize the ambitions of the region in a wide zone on both sides of the motorway.
The spatial quality map
The collaborating partners in the area between Apeldoorn and Voorst felt the need to respond constructively and consistently to these developments, with a view to preserving and developing spatial quality and a sustainable economy. In collaboration with the Gelders Genootschap, we have worked on a spatial quality map that provides direction and offers inspiring tools when considering initiatives with a spatial impact from the Cleantech A1 zone.
The map shows what we cherish and where we see opportunities for landscape enhancement and energy transition. The “map” is a means of communication to inspire and provide direction in further discussion and spatial considerations that have yet to be made. The result is a toolbox with instruments that can be used to further deepen projects and assignments in the area. We provide the tools with which initiators can get started. In addition, the map also puts a number of area-oriented design tasks on the agenda, which can be tackled in collaboration with governments and other partners.
