The HarbourModernisation Plan only helps for nine of the 25 key objectives ofsustainable and integrated urban development.sustainable and integrated urban development.• The Plan is rather balanced and integrated ? The objectives that arepositively influenced are important. So even at this stage the Plan isattractive.• Start discussions with other departments to improve and broaden thePlan. All options should be used.• Check with staff members of other department the priorities chosen. Maybe they see benefits in the Harbour Modernisation that we did not yettook into consideration

  19. 19. Example of commentIt is clear from the results obtained with the RFSC that themain objectives of the Harbour Modernisation Plans areeconomic. The social objectives are only improve housing,public space and the attractiveness of the area. The negativepublic space and the attractiveness of the area. The negativeimpact on emissions and air pollution does not show in thefinal profile of results, because this negative impact is"compensated" by the positive impact on otherenvironmental objectives (biodiversity, improve builtenvironment). Start discussing with other departments anddeputy mayor to strengthen the plan. Although, politically thedeputy mayor can "sell" this plan as rather integrated.
