B+O Urban Design has drawn up the urban development, visual quality and zoning plans for the expansion location on the Poeleweg in IJhorst. 39 residential houses of various typologies are being realized on this rural and beautifully situated location. In the peripheral zone, detached houses have been chosen, while more densification will take place in the core zone. A combination of detached houses, semi-detached houses and terraced houses is being built here. The zoning plan became irrevocable in 2022 and the site has now been prepared for construction. The construction of the terraced houses has also started and the first environmental permits have been granted for the construction of the other houses.
The design of the houses is tested against the visual quality plan drawn up by B+O. This document prescribes, among other things, that the houses will have a modern and rural appearance, which is in line with the village character and the adjacent nature reserve. The visual quality plan also pays attention to climate adaptation and nature-inclusive construction, so that a high quality of life is created for both people, flora and fauna. The development of the planning area responds to the great need for homes in the municipality of Staphorst and specifically the need of the IJhorsters themselves. Thanks to the development, the younger generation can also continue to live in the village.
