Waterpoort partnership to vitalize regional economy




On Thursday 30 June 2016 Zuid-Holland Province signed the Waterpoort partnership agreement together with the provinces of Noord-Brabant and Zeeland, six municipalities and 15 public sector and private sector entities.

For the next three and a half years these partners will be collaborating on specific projects in the Waterpoort programme that will help enhance the vitality of the regional economy.

Three themes

The three key themes are: water, the natural environment of the Delta region and heritage. Given the characteristics of the area all these have an obvious relevance to farming, energy and quality of life.

Lead driver of the Waterpoort programme is Noord-Brabant Province. The participation of Zuid-Holland Province is incorporated into the integral spatial planning programme IRP Goeree-Overflakkee.
