Master Plan Izegem

Elaboration of an integrated master plan for the city of Izegem

TML supported PALMBOUT Urban Landscapes and Collectief Noord with the development of the traffic engineering aspects of the master plan for the entire city of Izegem. This occurred in close interaction with the design process and with great attention for the qualitative and quantitative aspects of a functioning multi-modal traffic organization that enhances the spatial development of the master plan.

Izegem will use this master plan to frame future developments in a broader vision. Although the main emphasis lies on the city centre, the city also wants to create an identity and character for each of the centres of Izegem, in a coherent manner. The master plan also includes proposals for future renovation works in the other centres of Izegem and makes strategic decisions concerning the spatial development. Special attention is paid to the mobility issue, to living in all its aspects, and to green in the city. Communication, by means of consultation and participation, was an important part of the process.
