Urban regeneration in Geuzenveld-Slotermeer - Amsterdam


The Geuzenveld-Slotermeer Urban District is in the midst of a major improvement programme. The Urban District Council is implementing measures designed to enhance the living environment and give an additional impulse to social and economic activities; the Council is also collaborating with the housing corporations in the development of a new and varied supply of housing. The Urban District Council has implemented this programme with the objective of offering the residents improved housing, and ensuring for a more agreeable living environment.
In the years until 2015 a great deal of demolition and construction work is scheduled in the Geuzenveld-Slotermeer Urban District – work that will have a major impact on the residents’ familiar surroundings. The Urban District Council and the housing corporations are endeavouring to minimize this impact by the implementation of a social plan, as well as the management of the living environment during the construction work.
This urban renewal programme is not restricted to the Geuzenveld-Slotermeer Urban District, but also extends to Amsterdam’s entire ‘New West’ region – in fact, it is one of Europe’s largest urban-renewal projects.
