For the past ten years the Rijkswaterstaat, the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, have been working to strengthen some weak links in the coast. Alongside building the required coastal defence, the coast zone investments also ensure that Katwijk remains a tourist destination and supporting the local economy of seaside towns. With the need to strengthen the Katwijk coast, care is taken to preserve the value of the existing town and, ultimately, how this can also be made stronger.

In 2010, the municipality has engaged a process to regain quality of life and invest in the promotion of the touristic thermal city. Since the Roman times the city of Dax, in the southwest of France, is known for its hot water springs. OKRA’s plan is to develop a pedestrian friendly scheme for the city centre and to renovate one of the main spaces, the Fontaine Chaude Square.

The Brink Park, unlike the name suggests, was no park. It was evident it wasn’t seen as a park as even the city map of Apeldoorn did not indicate the space as a park; parked cars and buses dominated the space. The challenge was to transform the space into a park with facilities for different users whilst meeting the required parking; this was achieved by constructing an underground car park and park above.

Bellamy Park is located by the harbour of Vlissingen where the Merchant Harbour once stood. Bellamy Park and the Ruyter Square regain a new relationship with the old ports. The Ruyter Square will be slightly raised with sitting stairs at the Fisheries Harbour.

The Korenmarkt is the most urban area in this part of town where bars, restaurants and shops form the walls of the square. In the centre of the square stands a kiosk and along the edges of the square there are terraces. Emphasis is on catering and terraces. The location of the square in the city is unique.
